A man was walking his bike in a Colorado Springs neighborhood late Monday night when he was approached by a man who threatened to shoot him if he didn't hand over his bike, police said.

After the victim refused submit to the demand, he offered the suspect some cash, police said. The suspect didn't want the cash and again demanded the bike, police said.

The suspect then threatened to shoot the victim, who eventually "gave the suspect his cash and rode away from the area," police said in a statement.

No weapons were spotted, police said.

The victim returned home on his bike and called the police around 10:25 p.m. Monday, about 10 to 15 minutes after the alleged robbery happened at West Uintah and 19th streets.

Police said officers checked the area and did not locate the suspect.
