Raise an attempted robbery (4,2)


I believe the answer is:

hold up

This clue is a double definition.

'raise' is the first definition.

'an attempted robbery' is the second definition.
(eg a hold-up at a bank)

(Other definitions for hold up that I've seen before include "Delay" , "lift" , "Survive" , "Support by arms - threaten by arms" , "Stop and rob" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
