Police are looking for a man who threatened another man with a knife and demanded cash in Brighton Heights Wednesday night.

According to WPXI-TV, the incident was reported about 9:30 p.m. at a home on Fleming Avenue near Davis Avenue.

Police said a man showed up on the front porch, brandished a knife and demanded money. They said he threatened the man inside, so the man told his wife to get money.

As she was going upstairs, the man closed the door behind him and called police.

The attempted robber fled and got away without any cash or items from the home.

There were no reported injuries. Anyone with information is asked to call police.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
