A 44-year-old man was arrested in South Seattle after an attempted robbery at a gas station, according to Seattle police.
The man walked into the gas station in the 2400 block of Beacon Avenue South and demanded money from an employee while pretending to hold a concealed weapon behind his back, according to a police report.
The employee paged the manager over the intercom, who asked what was going on, prompting the man to run out of the store empty-handed heading north on 15th Avenue South, the report said.
Officers arrested the man at the intersection of 14th Avenue South and South Lander Street, the report said. Police said he also had a felony warrant for escape and was on probation for first-degree robbery.
The man was booked into the King County Jail for robbery and the felony warrant, the report said.

A gas station and a 7-Eleven were held up at gunpoint in Federal Way early this morning by the same two men who got away.
At least in one case, however, the robbers got nothing for their efforts, according to Federal Way police.
The robbers hit a Chevron station in the 1700 block of South 356th Street at 1.24 a.m. No one was hurt and police haven’t said if the gunmen left with any money or goods. Police were called and used dogs to look for the men but that turned up nothing, police said.
At about 1:46 a.m., two men believed to be the same men who held up the Chevron station showed up at a 7-Eleven in the 28700 block of Military Road South where they attempted to hold up the place. The clerk there got into a sturggle with one or both of the men and suffered some face and head injuries. The robbers got away, but empty handed, police said.
Police have surveillance video of both stick ups and are checking with other police agencies to see if they have had similar robberies involving these men.
