RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Riverside authorities are looking for a would-be bank robber who spat gasoline during a holdup.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/2i0Kxyu ) says nobody was injured in Thursday’s holdup at the Altura Credit Union.

Police say the man entered the bank, passed a note to the teller demanding money, then put some gasoline from a bottle into his mouth and started spitting it.

He also poured gas on the counter.

The teller was protected by a glass barrier and the man ran off.
