A man has fled empty-handed after attempting to rob a security van on Auckland's Dominion Rd.
Police said the offender pointed a gun at the driver near the Westpac bank at 2pm today.
The gunman fled the scene before he was able to steal any cash, and the vehicle he was travelling in was found abandoned soon after.
Police inquiries are continuing.
