NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — A masked man armed with a sticky note who was unsuccessful in his attempt to rob a South Carolina gas station then left for the next-door bar.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports a man wearing a black ski mask brandished a sticky note reading "I need all the money in register" when he tried to rob Turtle Market in North Myrtle Beach on Wednesday.

Police say an employee told them that she didn't turn over any money. Police say the man then walked to 39th Avenue Bar and Grill located next door.

The employee told police the man never spoke and that he used his elbow to push open the door as he left.

Witnesses say he left 39th Avenue Bar and Grill on a blue moped.
