— Janesville police were looking Monday for a man who early Monday morning attempted to rob the female clerk at Lions Quick Mart, 104 E. Racine St.

The would-be robber wore nylons over his face, Lt. Tim Hiers said.


The clerk yelled at him to get out, the man fled, and the clerk pulled the hold-up alarm.


Not knowing the alarm had been activated, the man came back to the store a short time later, "pointed at her, said something to the extent of ‘give it up' " then fled on foot, Hiers said.


No weapon was displayed, nobody got hurt and the man got nothing, Hiers said.


The man is in his late teens or early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 150 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, Hiers said.


Anyone with information about this incident can call Janesville Area CrimeStoppers at (608) 756-3636 or the Janesville Police Department at (608) 755-3100.
