SHOREWOOD, Wis. — An attempted armed robbery occurred about 7:10 a.m. Monday in the 4300 block of N. Stowell Avenue, the Shorewood Police Department said in a news release.

While trying to back a vehicle out of a driveway, a resident saw a dark green or black older model Toyota 4-door pull onto the driveway behind the person, police said.

A suspect reportedly exited the rear door of the Toyota and approached the passenger side of the victim's vehicle, opened the door and pointed a semi-automatic handgun at the victim, demanding property, police said in the release.

The victim refused, and the suspect reportedly ran back to the Toyota, which last was seen westbound on Lake Bluff Boulevard.

The suspect was described as a black male, in his late teens to early 20s, 5 feet, 9 inches and about 155 pounds. He last was seen wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt. Other occupants of the Toyota were not observed.
