WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Officers responded to a call about attempted armed robbery in the 600 block of Harnett Street that was prevented by a dog.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, the victim told officers that she was pulling up to a friend's house around 8:14 p.m. when her friend noticed a gold car following her.

The victim's friend said that the gold car circled around and parked on Love Alley across the street.

Two suspects got out of the vehicle and started walking towards the victim. One suspect lifted his shirt revealing a handgun and asked, "Where is the money?"

After seeing this, the victim's friend came out of his house with his pit bull, which led to the suspects fleeing the scene.

The WPD is continuing their investigation of the incident.
