Prince George RCMP are searching for a suspect who tried to rob two people with a hammer Monday morning.
Police were called to the intersection of 17th Avenue and Larch Street at 9:30 and found a man with a head wound.
Investigators say two men were walking along 17th avenue when a masked man approached them and demanded their phones.
When they refused, the suspect pulled out a hammer and hit one of the men on the head before fleeing empty handed.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 20 to 30 years old, and wearing a red jacket, loose black pants, and a mask covering his face.
Call police or Crimestoppers with any information.
