FEIGNING A WEAPON,
MAN AVERTS ROBBERY

A 52-year-old man averted a robbery Sunday night when he reached under the seat of his car to make it seem as if he had a weapon, Ferry-Fillmore District police said.

Officers said a man with a knife demanded money at about 10 p.m. while he was getting into his car at Genesee and May streets.

According to police, the would-be robber, wearing a burgundy skullcap, grabbed the door and yelled: "Give me the money."

When the victim reached under his car seat, the man fled down May Street, police said.
