RNC are investigating an attempted armed robbery that occurred in St. John's on Saturday.

Police say they responded to a mobile vendor in the area of Churchill Square after receiving a report of an attempted armed robbery.

A lone suspect gained access to the mobile vendor, approaching the employee with a weapon, demanding cash.

Without obtaining any money, the suspect fled the area on foot, travelling in the direction of Rowan Place.

Investigators are requesting that businesses in the Churchill Square area review any CCTV to check on whether there was footage of a male fitting the noted description.

Furthermore, anybody in the area of Pine Bud Avenue or Churchill Square with CCTV or dash camera footage around the time of the incident, please contact the RNC with any footage of the suspect.
