It was a robbery that didn't go according to plan.
Regional Police were called to the Marble Slab Creamery on University Avenue West in Waterloo Sunday night around 9:30 p.m.
Police say an unknown suspect went into the store and demanded money, while also threatening that he had a weapon.
No weapon was seen, and police say the suspect left the store empty-handed.
They're looking for a man in his 50's, white, 5'5" to 5'6" with an average build.
He was wearing grey pants, a black jacket, a red hat and a Canada flag bandana as a mask.
You're asked to call police or Crime Stoppers if you have any information.
