A man implied he had a weapon while trying to rob The Vitamin Shop, 15445 W. Bluemound Road, at 6:29 p.m. Friday, but he ran off without taking anything after learning a third person was in the store.
According to the Brookfield police report:
A man selected items from the store and took them to the checkout area. He then reached into his back pocket - as if for a weapon - and told the clerk, "Give me all the money."
The clerk told the man that his daughter also was in the store, and the man fled without having gotten money or merchandise.
The man is described as a white man in his late 30s or early 40s who stands about 6 feet tall, weighs about 220 pounds and has dark hair.
