Man attempts to rob financial business in downtown Macon

Macon police are investigating an attempted armed robbery Monday afternoon at Time Loan and Income Tax, 360 Cherry St., according to a Macon police report.

A man, who was wearing a red bandanna on his face, tried to enter the business about 12:45 p.m. but was not able to get past the locked magnetic doors, according to the report.
