BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- UPDATE: September 9, 2019

Bowling Green Police have released more information on the scene of an attempted robbery over the weekend.

On Saturday, Bowling Green Police responded to a robbery in progress at Smoothie King on Nashville Road.

Employees had told them the suspect was still inside the store.

When police got there, they found a man sitting alone inside the store. After the scene was secured, police interviewed the employees.

One of the employees told officers the white male had come into the store around 5 p.m. and started asking questions about the business. He left and then returned a couple hours later, sitting near the front windows and talking to himself, along with waving to someone outside.

She said when she went to the back of the store, the other employee called her up because the male had a gun.

She said the male flashed a gun in his waistband, telling her he wanted the "money bank."

The two employees then walked with him to the back of the store where the safe was. One employee said when she got to the back of the store she grabbed the money drawer, threw it in the safe, and closed it.

They then fled outside.

The previously mentioned male eventually got up and walked out of the front door. He was detained and interviewed. The two employees stated that man was not the suspect and that he had been there to fill out an application.

The employees said the suspect was a white male wearing a neon orange shirt, khaki pants and a hat. They also said he had no teeth.

Photos have been taken of the unknown white male via surveillance footage.
