Grand Junction police are still hunting for a man who attempted to rob a local restaurant at gun point early Tuesday morning.

The attempted robbery happened just before 1 a.m. at the Village Inn on Horizon Drive.

Police say the suspect broke into the restaurant by throwing a rock through a window.

There was one employee working at the time.

Police say the man, who was wearing a ski mask and carrying a handgun, demanded the employee open the safe and give him the money inside.

The employee did not open the safe, and the suspect took off on foot.
Police K–9 dogs followed the scent toward Crossroads Boulevard but lost it after that.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 241–7867.
