Police are looking for a man who tried to rob another man at gunpoint Sunday in Pearl City.

Police said the victim, 41, was walking to his car at Pearl City Plaza, 97-719 Kamehameha Highway, about 10 a.m. when another man stuck a black handgun in his chest and demanded money. The victim didn’t think the gun was real and the two men fought.

The gunman got into a waiting black pickup and left. He didn’t take any money or property.

Police described the gunman as dark-skinned, in his 30s, about 6 feet tall, and about 220 pounds with a muscular build. He was wearing a black hoodie and blue denim jeans.
