Police searching for man who tried to rob Jo-Ann Fabrics

Police were called to the store around 1:50 p.m. Thursday. An employee told police that a man handed a cashier a note demanding money, but then took the note back and ran out of the business. He was last seen running westbound, according to police.

The man is described as a white male about 5’ 6” inches tall with an average build. He was wearing a dark puffy jacket, blue jeans, an orange backpack and a light colored scarf covering his face.
