BELLINGHAM - Police are looking for a man who attempted to rob a Bellingham store and threw a scale at the owner before leaving without any cash Monday night, May 19, according to the Bellingham Police Department.
The owner of Intercontinental Foods, 4564 Meridian St., was working at about 9:45 p.m. when a man in his 20s walked in with a bag on his hand, implying that he had a gun, police Lt. Bob Vander Yacht said.
The man demanded money, and when he thought the owner was moving too slowly, he grabbed the owner's wrist. The two struggled briefly, and the man threw a food scale that had been on the counter at the owner and then ran from the store without getting any cash.
The owner was checking security footage to see if the man was caught on tape. He described him as a fair-skinned, skinny man wearing a red zip-up hoodie, a light-colored baseball cap, black shorts and white shoes.
