An armored car team was serving an ATM at a local bank when police say a man suddenly appeared and attempted to rob them.
The brazen robbery attempt occurred at the Whitney Bank at 28289 Gerstner Memorial Highway.
Lake Charles Police Department spokesman Mark Kraus said the suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man wearing a dark-colored jacket and blue jeans, with something blue over his face.
Kraus said the man had a firearm when he approached the armored car worker from behind on Tuesday, May 3, and demanded the worker open the ATM safe.
The worker refused and the man fled on foot toward 19th Street.
Kraus asked anyone with information to call the Lake Charles Police Department at 337-491-1311.  

Police did not say if any shots were fired and no one was reported to have been injured.
Police also did not disclose who owned the armored truck service.
