2012-11-28T00:00:00Z 2012-11-28T00:10:13Z Robbery attempt in Butte - Man demands cash at credit union on FlatBy John Grant Emeigh of The Montana Standard Montana Standard

A man claiming to have a gun attempted to rob the EdTech Federal Credit Union, 1555 Harrison Ave., Tuesday afternoon.

The lone suspect remained at large Tuesday evening.

Police said a white male entered the credit union about 3:30 p.m. with a black backpack and demanded money from a female teller. Capt. Doug Conway said the man claimed to have a gun, but none of the employees reported seeing one.

The man then left the bank and was last seen walking west. Conway wouldn’t say if the man got away with any money, but referred to the incident as an “attempted robbery.”

The man was wearing a black coat, black baseball cap with earflaps, jeans and dark shoes.

Officers spent the afternoon searching the alleys and area businesses.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 497-1120, or Sgt. Jimm Kilmer at 497-1161.
