Mall worker thwarts youth's robbery attempt

A young male wearing a ski mask tried to rob a West Acres employee in the mall's parking lot Tuesday morning.

The worker told Fargo police the youth approached him when he got out of his pickup. He had parked in the employee lot on the mall's north side about 9:40 a.m.

Police said the worker carried empty bank bag.

The employee said the youth demanded money and started walking toward him when he refused. The employee said he pushed the young man, who fell down, then got up and ran to the north. Police said the youth didn't show a weapon.

The employee described the youth as being 12 to 15 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighing about 100 pounds. He said that in addition to the black ski mask, the young man wore a bright yellow T-shirt with the Nestle Quik logo, dark blue baggy jeans and thick canvas tennis shoes.
