Bismarck police are looking for a man who attempted to rob the Loaf N Jug on East Rosser downtown around 4:30 Tuesday morning.

The 23-year-old night clerk on duty at the time reported that a man estimated to be in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties approached the counter and demanded money while brandishing a black folding knife.

The robber was trying to hide his features behind his shirt, but the clerk managed to form a fairly thorough description nonetheless.

The perpetrator is described as a white male, brown hair and brown eyes, 25-35 years old, clean-shaven, around 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing between 140 and 180 pounds. During the robbery, he was wearing a Duke hooded sweatshirt with grey sweatpants and tennis shoes.

His attempt did prove unsuccessful: no money or property is missing from the store.
