    Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan Police are looking for a white male, 20-30 years old, short, with a thin build, and blonde hair. This man suspected of an attempted robbery was last seen on August 3rd wearing a white t-shirt, blue shorts, black shoes running towards the Plaza.

    At approximately 4:15 PM, the victim, a 66-year-old male, was in his vehicle in the area of First Avenue and Tongass Avenue when the suspect approached him. The suspect produced a handgun, pointed it at the victim, and demanded money. The victim grabbed the suspect's weapon and took it from him. The suspect then fled toward the Plaza on foot. Besides being shaken up, the victim was not injured during the encounter according to information released by the Ketchikan Police Department.

    If anyone was in the area of First Ave. and Tongass (E. C. Phillips) between 4:00 pm and 4:15 pm on the afternoon of Monday, August 3rd, and you think you may have seen something that will help the police apprehend this criminal, please contact the Ketchikan Police Department.

    The only two ways off the island Ketchikan is on is by air or by boat, and it's not all that big a place. This guy is really dumb.

    I've been in Ketchikan. Beautiful place...great fishing, too!
    It's a small city built on the side of a mountain...there is no place to go out of town...this robber is a real 'maroooon'.
    Needless to say, the victim grabbing the BG's gun is proof of the BG's stupidity...now let's see the BG gets 'out of town'...boat or plane?

    Seems a lot of folks think that being elderly equals being feeble .
    You don't get old by being stupid or not able to take care of yourself.
    The guy was lucky the victim did not throw a couple of shots at him.

    There's a couple of old men around town who could, and would, put that gun in it's "natural holster".
