ESSEX, Vt. (AP) - Police in Essex, Vt., say a homeowner confronted at his front door by a man with a gun wrestled the weapon away from the man, who got away. The weapon turned out to be pellet gun.

Police said the man with the gun knocked on the door of the home at about 9:15 p.m. Thursday. He showed the gun and demanded money when the homeowner answered.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt. Nothing was stolen.

Police say they are looking for the man, who is described as white and in his 30s with dark hair, a goatee and moustache. He was about 5-foot-8 and 170 lbs. He was wearing a black baseball-type hat, a black hoodie and dark pants.
