Gardaí in Co Donegal are hunting for a man who tried to rob a post office on Friday morning.
Detectives say the lone raider smashed security glass inside Kilmacrennan Post Office around 9.30am but then fled empty-handed.
Staff were left terrified by the incident, said Gda Supt David Kelly.
The suspect was described as about 6ft tall, of heavy build and was wearing a blue tracksuit.
He fled the area in a metallic blue Peugeot 206 which may have had a Northern Ireland registration plate.
Supt Kelly described the incident as "very serious".
He appealed to anyone with information to call Milford Gardaí on 07491 53060.
