In a bizarre attempted robbery, an unknown man tried -- and failed -- to snatch a bag of dog droppings from a woman's hand on Monday, while she was out walking her pet in the 2000 block of Central Expressway, police said.

Police did not find the suspect, who is described as being about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, said Wylie.
