PERRY -- A teenager foiled an attempted robbery in the parking lot of a restaurant Tuesday night by driving off, police said.
The 19-year-old was sitting in her vehicle with the windows down in the parking lot of Zaxbys at 1425 Sam Nunn Blvd. talking on a cellphone to her stepfather when a man walked up to her, said Perry police Capt. Heath Dykes.
The man had his finger under his shirt to make it look like he had a weapon and told the teenager he needed money, Dykes said.
The teen told him she didnt have any money and would have to go get some before driving off, Dykes said. Meanwhile, the stepfather called 911 at 10:22 p.m.
The suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall, with a thin build and dark complexion. The teen thought he was an older man. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a blue Adidas jacket.
Anyone with information is asked to call Perry police detective Tom Daley at 988-2821.
