Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE KOOTENAI COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Friday at 0408 am Kootenai County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of an attempted robbery in the 8400 block of N Rude St in Hayden.  

Michael W Lyman (22) of Post Falls was delivering newspapers and stopped at the address to deliver the paper when he encountered an adult male laying in the front yard.  The male approached him and demanded money inferring he had a gun.  Michael did not see a gun and challenged the male. 

The male then walked away northbound on Rude St.  The male is described as white, approximately 6'2" and 180 lbs. He was last seen wearing dark pants, a dark grey or dirty "hoody" type sweatshirt. 

The male had a red bandana with white spots on it covering the lower portion of his face.   Deputies found a garage door open in the 8600 block of N Rude St. during their search along with a quiver of arrows propped up on a nearby fence. 

The quiver had been taken from the open garage. Indications are that the male may have been in the area committing burglaries.  The male has not been located.   

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. 208-446-1300  Case #13-03444
