LINCOLN PARK, Calif., June 12 (UPI) -- A man described as wearing a flowered shirt and "lots of lip gloss" tried and failed to rob a San Diego bank, police said.

San Diego Police Sgt. Ray Battrick said a teller at the Wells Fargo Bank branch in Lincoln Park, Calif., Saturday would not give the man money in spite of his demand note, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The man left the bank, and bank workers called police around 3:14 p.m.

Battrick said bank workers described the alleged attempted robber as a black man in his 20s, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, about 175 pounds, wearing a flowered white shirt, white hat, sunglasses and a lot of lip gloss.

It was unclear which brand of gloss he preferred.
