MINNETONKA, Minn. (AP) — Some Girl Scouts selling cookies witnessed an attempted bank robbery in the western Twin Cities.

A woman and her two daughters were selling the cookies at a TCF Bank in Minnetonka when a man walked in and tried to rob it around 11:30 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say the man stood in line, and then told the teller to give him all of her 50s and 100s. The teller walked away from the counter without giving any money to the man.

KSTP-TV reports the man left the bank. None of the witnesses saw a weapon.

The would-be robber is described as a white man, about 35 years-old, about 6-foot-2, weighing about 240 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a gray Nike hooded sweat shirt, blue jeans, a red Minnesota Twins baseball cap, and white sneakers.

No one was hurt.
