A would-be thief attempted to pry open a cash register at a Pittsfield Township party store while the clerk was distracted this afternoon, police say.

The attempted robbery occurred at 3 p.m. in the 4000 block of Packard Road.

Police said the store clerk returned to the register to find a man attempting to pry it open with a knife. The man fled and was last seen running eastbound, police said.

Nothing was taken, and no one was injured.

The would-be thief was described as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with short hair, medium build, wearing a black and white patterned shirt, baggy black pants, dark knit cap, and possibly white gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsfield police at (734) 944-4911.
