HALIFAX - Two teens fled empty handed from a robbery attempt early Sunday morning after police say the victim screamed then ran towards her home.

Police say the teens approached the victim around 1 a.m. at the intersection of Cornwallis and Barrington streets. One of the teens threatened the victim with a knife, police say, and demanded her purse.

That’s when police say the victim screamed and ran in the direction of her house.

Nothing ended up being stolen and the victim wasn’t injured.

The teens are described as black, and between the ages of 15 and 18. One was said to be wearing a gray pattered hoodie, and the other a burgundy hoodie.
