A would-be robber approached his alleged victim with a stun gun, but it was not enough to convince the victim to hand over his wallet.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says the suspect even activated the stun-gun, but did not zap the victim.

Instead, the victim reportedly went to his vehicle and pulled out a hand gun. That's when the suspect took off on foot.

The suspect is described as a black man, 6'1" tall and weighing 160-170 lbs. He was wearing a gray hoodie and black jeans.

The incident happened at 3:15 a.m. at Deja Vu Showgirls on B Street in Colorado Springs. That is near I-25 and South Academy Blvd.
