St. Louis Police say prosecutors are refusing to file charges against the man police say tried to carjack two officers in a marked patrol SUV Saturday.

Police had sought charges of first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and resisting arrest against a 27-year-old man.

Allison Hawk, a spokeswoman for the circuit attorney's office, told St. Louis Today the case was still under investigation.

About 3 a.m. Saturday, the two officers were driving to a report of gunfire. The officers said a man stepped in front of their car, then walked to the passenger side and pointed a gun at the officers.

The man ran off once he realized the car was a marked police car, police said.

Police say they arrested the man after a search and found him carrying a gun. No one was injured.
