The Greenville Police Department is investigating an attempted robbery on Tuesday night at a Taco Bell where a man allegedly presented a note and demanded money.

Police responded to the restaurant, 3906 S. Memorial Drive, about 8 p.m. after a report of an armed robbery, police department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said.

A man approached an employee, presented a note demanding money and implied he had a weapon, Hunter said.

The employee ran to the back of the business, and the suspect exited the restaurant, Hunter said.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man in his 40s and driving a dark-colored, four-door vehicle, according to police.
