He may have been trying to rob a woman--but at least he had good manners while doing so.

Sister station KCNC reports that the robber who prompted a short lockdown at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Saturday, actually apologized to the woman he attempted to rob.

KCNC says the suspect tried to rob the victim at a Comfort Inn on 32nd and Airport Boulevard in Aurora early Saturday morning. He was reportedly waiting in the second story stairwell for the victim, armed with a gun.

But when he demanded money and she said she wasn't carrying any--Aurora police said he apologized and backed down.

"“He approaches her with a shotgun, demands money, she tells him I don’t have any money and then he actually apologizes and then leaves the hotel,” Sgt. Chris Amsler from the Aurora Police Department told KCNC.

He was later thought to be spotted at the Springhill Suites on East Colfax, four miles away.

Aurora police put the medical campus, including the Children's Hospital, on lockdown while they searched the area. The suspect was never located.

Police describe the suspect as a white male in his 50s, salt-and-pepper hair, wearing a black hoodie or gray shirt with jeans. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Aurora Police Department.
