A would-be thief left empty-handed after trying to rob a man at the Legacy YMCA in Bessemer Monday morning.
The victim reportedly told the robber he should leave before something happened that he would regret.
The incident happened around 5:30 a.m. Monday when the thief entered the facility, pointed his weapon and demanded money.
After that, officials say the male suspect stopped at several other businesses before being arrested at a hotel on 9th Avenue Southwest in Bessemer.
The suspect remains behind bars tonight awaiting several assault, robbery and drug charges.
