A thief pulled a knife on a woman on May 30, but failed to run off with her bag, officials said.

The victim told police that she was walking down 18th Avenue when the suspect, identified as Manuel Tambriz, pulled a knife while he tried to pull her purse and a plastic bag away from her, but ended up running off empty handed.

Police said that they arrested the 40-year-old thief the day after the 11 pm attempted robbery on 18th Avenue between 76th and 77th streets.
