Man Who Tried Robbing Restaurant Still on the Loose

Posted: Updated:

Deputies are still searching for an armed man who attempted to rob a woman over the weekend.

The man tried to rob an employee of the Bungalow Inn on the south end of Manistee just before 11:30 Friday night.

The owner's mother was taking off for the night with the money bag.

Deputies say that's when the robber attacked her with pepper spray.

She fell to the ground but clutched onto the bag, crying for help until other employees came and scared the robber away.

K-9 units tracked him to a nearby school, but that's the last known trace of him.
