TYLER (KYTX) - Tyler Police are looking for a man who tried to rob a fast food worker.
Around 12:07 Wednesday morning, officers with the Tyler Police Department responded to 4014 S. Broadway. An employee of Arby's was leaving work and getting into her vehicle. After unlocking her vehicle she got into the driver's seat and attempted to close the door. An unknown subject grabbed the door and prevented her from closing it. He then sprayed her with mace and pulled her from the vehicle. He then ran around her vehicle and got into the passenger side door and proceeded to rummage through her vehicle. At this time the victim fled the scene and ran to McDonalds next door. An employee there called 911. The suspect had fled the scene prior to the arrival of officers. The victim reported nothing appeared to be stolen at this time.
The subject was described as a male subject wearing all black with a black ski mask that had a skull print on the front. No other description is available at this time. The victim suffered no physical injuries other than those commonly associated with getting sprayed by mace.
