A man allegedly attempted to rob a bank near Harvard Square Tuesday afternoon, the Cambridge Police Department said.

The suspect attempted to rob the Cambridge Trust Company at 1336 Massachusetts Ave. at 1:11 p.m, officials said.

“A note was passed, but the suspect was not successful,” Cambridge police spokesman Jeremy Warnick said.

He then fled on foot into Harvard Yard, authorities said.

The suspect was described as a man in his 30s or 40s, Warnick said. He was about 5 feet 5 inches tall, wearing dark clothing and a black-and-white top.

The regional Bank Robbery Task Force has been notified and is aware of the robbery, Warnick said.

No additional information was immediately available.
