A North Union man told police someone tried to rob him at gunpoint after he used a bank machine, according to a police report.

The man told Uniontown Police a black Chevrolet S-10 Blazer followed him into the city at 1:10 a.m. Monday from Uniontown Mall, where he had just used an ATM.

When both vehicles stopped at a red light at the intersection of Stewart, Main and Coolspring streets, a passenger holding a small pistol stepped out of the Blazer, approached the driver's side of the other vehicle and demanded money, according to the report.

The would-be victim sped off, leaving the gunman standing in the street. The Blazer fled north on Coolspring Street, police said.

The attempted robbery was reported to a police officer who was in a patrol car on Connellsville Street.

The gunman is described as a Hispanic male, muscular, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a goatee and neck tattoo. A woman was driving the Blazer, which police were unable to find, the report said.
