Police hunt for armed teen in attempted robbery

POLICE are searching for a teenage boy who allegedly made attempts to rob a Dalby business this afternoon.

At about 3.05pm the teenage boy entered a business on Patrick Street and made demands for money.

No property was obtained, and the employee was not physically injured during the incident.
