Natchez police were still looking for an unknown woman Monday who is believed to have attempted two armed robberies on Sunday.

No money was taken and no one was injured, said Natchez Police&160;Chief Willie Huff.

In one robbery, the employee said she had no money and the suspect left the business. In the other robbery, the employee ran into a back room after seeing the gun and the suspect left, Huff said.

Police believe the same suspect attempted both robberies because of matching clothing descriptions.

The locations of the robberies were not released by police.
