In what was not the smartest of robbery attempts, a Glendora man was arrested and charged with trying to rob two women in front of the Glendora Police station shortly after midnight Tuesday.
Police arrested Terry McCollum, 34, on suspicion of robbery at 12:22 a.m.
Glendora Police Lt. Joe Ward said two women were coming into the police station, 150 South Glendora Ave., to buy parking permits. A man approached the women and simulated a gun under his shirt.
He then told the women to give him their money or he would kill them, Ward said. The women ran and escaped, then called police.
A few minutes later, officers found the suspect around the corner from the station, Ward said. He added that McCollum, who was unarmed, is a known transient in Glendora.
McCollum was transported to Los Angeles County Jail where he is being held on $100,000 bail.
