Dapper gunman tries to rob safe from NYC garage.

A fashionably dressed dapper gunman attempted to rob a parking garage in Manhattan — but was forced to leave empty-handed when an employee couldn’t get the safe open.

The suspect was dressed in a navy suit and pretended to be a customer at the parking lot on West 42nd Street when he pulled a gun out and held a 46-year-old female employee at gunpoint at approximately 8:30 a.m. Monday.

The dapper criminal demanded that the employee opened a safe that was in a back room. When the woman couldn’t unlock it, the man fled, The New York Post reported.

The suspect is about 5-foot-10 with a medium build and had a black backpack, according to officials.

In addition to the suit, he wore a white shirt, dark tie, black shoes, and a multicolored scarf.
