Police car lightA 40-year-old man had a gun pulled on him in an attempted robbery in Columbia Heights as wind and snow whipped through the neighborhood over the weekend, police said.

The crime happened on the 3000 block of 14th Street NW about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. The area is just south of the Columbia Heights Metro station.

The man was walking home in the middle of the road when a young man with a small handgun approached him, police said.

“What’s up cuz I’m trying to get your money,” the armed man said, while flashing his gun, according to authorities.

The victim then escaped into his apartment building, and the man with the gun fled without taking anything.

“He can’t believe youngin pulled a gun on him,” a witness told police.

Authorities described the suspect as:

B/M, 6’1, 190, wearing a [gray] hat with orange stripes, black jacket with hoodie and black glasses
