SAN CARLOS (CBS SF) – A man who wore his attitude not on his sleeve but on the back of his shirt is being sought following an attempted robbery of a San Carlos gas station.

Surveillance images showed the man entering into the Shell gas station convenience store and walking behind the counter to confront clerk, ordering him to open the register.

The man was described as white with a thin build and shaved head, wearing white painters pants and a white t-shirt with the message ‘Monster Attitude’ on the back.
