An armed suspect attempted a robbery at a South Side strip mall, said police.

The incident occurred around 5:15 p.m. at 2014 West 79th Street.

The offender flashed a gun at the store clerk, but didn't get any proceeds, said investigators.

Police described the would-be thief as a dark complexioned black man with a mustache and beard, approximately 25-years-old, and 230 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black pants, and a black Black Sox baseball cap.

After the attempted armed robbery, the offender fled in an unknown direction.

According to one source, the incident was captured by a surveillance camera.

Authorities did not say which store in the strip mall was targeted. However, according to real estate property website LoopNet.com, there are only three stores at this location: Citibank, MS Beauty Supply, and Cricket.
