Restaurant manager foils robbery try

Police are searching for a man who attempted to rob the manager of Long John Silver's Restaurant as he deposited the night's receipts in a Westminster bank about midnight Wednesday.

John D. Hopkins told state police that a man approached him as he was about to place a money bag in the night depository of the Bank of Maryland Carroll County in the Westminster Professional Center, 500 block of Baltimore Blvd. at 11:55 p.m.

Mr. Hopkins said the man demanded, "Give me the money." Instead the manager swung around and hit the robber in the face with the bank bag. The robber ran.

Police said the assailant was described as a black male, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing about 150 pounds. He was wearing gray sweat pants and a white T-shirt.

Mr. Hopkins was not injured and inserted the money bag in the night depository after the man fled.
