FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) An attempted robbery at a credit union Monday was foiled by quick thinking employees who were able to lock the doors before anyone got inside.

Around 11:45 a.m., The Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Public Service Credit Union located at 3425 Hobson Rd.

Officers spoke with employees who said they locked the subject out of the bank and nothing was taken, according to an incident report provided by the FWPD.

One employee told police she saw the car pull up and she could see a gun in the hand of a passenger who was getting out of the Buick. She then told the other co-workers to lock the inside door.

The masked man came inside the first door but the door to the bank lobby was locked. 

The employee told police he tripped on the rug and fell down when leaving the credit union. He got back in the car, with three others inside.

Police described the man who tried to rob the bank as a black man who wore white gloves, a grey hooded sweatshirt, dark colored pants and a camouflage ski mask.

Police said the car they used appeared to be a silver 2000 Buick Century.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (260) 436-STOP or 436-7867
