A man walked into a Liberty Bank in the 2700 block of Canal Street in Mid-City Thursday morning and tried a stick-up, police said in a preliminary police log.

But a teller refused to oblige the alleged perpetrator, whom police have identified as 28-year-old Steven Shelby. Shelby fled the scene and was arrested shortly after, police said.
