MURRIETA, Calif., Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Police in California said an attempted bank robbery was foiled when tellers simply refused the note a man used to demand money.

Murrieta police Sgt. Dave Baca said the man, described as thin and in his early 20s, walked into the Bank of America branch at 12:56 p.m. Wednesday and handed a teller a note demanding money, The (Riverside, Calif.) Press-Enterprise reported Thursday.

"They just didn't give him any money," Baca said. "They ignored his requests and he left after 15 or 20 seconds."

The suspect was last seen walking toward a nearby Walgreens store.
