3000 block of Georgia Avenue NW (Photo via Google Maps)A would-be thief pulled out a gun and tried to rob a man in Park View earlier this week after he said he wasn’t from the area, according to a police report Borderstan obtained today.

The attempted robbery happened on the 3000 block of Georgia Avenue NW about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The victim was walking from a store across from the Bruce Monroe Community Park when someone came up to him, authorities said. That individual then asked the man whether he was “from around the area.”

The man, who lives in Maryland, said he didn’t reside in the neighborhood. The person who approached the victim then flashed a handgun in an effort to rob the man.

But the victim ran to his car and drove away.

Police haven’t released any suspect information.
