Police are searching for the man who followed a woman to her car outside a Bristol convenience store, got into the passenger's seat and demanded she drive him to the bank.

According to police, the victim was leaving Marty's Mart at 198 Burlington Avenue shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday when a man with a knife got into her car and told her to drive to a bank.

The woman drew attention to herself, scaring off the would-be robber. He was last seen running eastbound, and a police K-9 failed to track him down, according to police.

The suspect stands between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and has an average build. He was wearing dark-colored clothing and a knit hat, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to call Bristol police at 860-584-3011.
