Quincy police said they are looking for men allegedly involved in three attempted robberies in which the suspects got away with no money.
According to police, the toll booth attendant at the Ross Parking Garage was the first victim of a series of incidents Monday evening that may or may not be related.
The attendant had been robbed the previous week, and the victim told police that one of the four men who approached him last time came back on Monday at 6:25 p.m. and tried to steal more money.
Police said that the suspect allegedly reached into the booth, but that the victim smacked his hand away. The victim then opened the door and yelled to someone.
When the suspect ran off, police said, the victim chased him down the street, but soon lost sight of him.
Police describe the suspect as being a 16-year-old black man wearing a dark hoodie. No money was taken in the incident.
A short while later, at 6:56 p.m., the Super Petroleum gas station on Sea Street was robbed, police said.
Police said that two men in their 20s came up to the cash register. One man went behind the counter and showed a knife while the other stood in front of the counter. The victim said the suspects demanded money.

The victim described the suspects as two black men. One was approximately 6’3”, the other 5’10”, and both were wearing black hoodies.
At 7:22 p.m. the same night, the Super Petroleum on Southern Artery was also the scene of an attempted armed robbery.
Police said that the gas station attendant was pumping gas when he saw a man at the service kiosk. The suspect allegedly showed a knife and demanded money.
