Paper Carrier Reports Robbery Try

A Post Falls newspaper carrier reports that a man tried to rob him this morning as he delivered papers in the 8400 block of North Rude in Hayden. Here is the Kootenai County sheriff's report:

“On 2/15/13 at 0408 am Kootenai County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an attempted robbery in the 8400 block of N Rude St in Hayden. Michael W Lyman (22) of Post Falls was delivering newspapers and stopped at the address to deliver the paper when he encountered an adult male laying in the front yard.  The male approached him and demanded money inferring he had a gun.  Michael did not see a gun and challenged the male.  The male then walked away northbound on Rude St.  The male is described as white, approximately 6’2” and 180 lbs.  He was last seen wearing dark pants, a dark grey or dirty “hoody” type sweatshirt.  The male had a red bandana with white spots on it covering the lower portion of his face.
