Cranston police told The Providence Journal that the robbery attempt happened Thursday around 7 p.m., closing time at a Citizens Bank counter inside a grocery store.
Major Robert W. Ryan says the man gave the teller a note written on a ripped paper plate that said, "This is a robbery."
The teller put down the security curtain, told the man the branch was closing and closed the security screen door.
Ryan says the man quickly walked away empty-handed.
Robber, robber go away, come again some other day.
Police are looking for the man.
