SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) -- Police say an armored truck guard was unloading a bag of money outside a Springfield bank Thursday when a man in a hooded sweatshirt walked up and demanded the cash.

Police say the would-be robber kept his hands concealed in a pocked during the brief confrontation.

The Register-Guard reports the guard responded by pulling his handgun.

The suspect ran off and got away despite a police search.
