Police said the suspect entered the bank at about 9:40 a.m. Monday and passed a note to the teller demanding money. He implied he had a weapon, police said, but he never displayed a firearm. 

Witnesses described the suspect as a black man, at least 5 feet, 11 inches tall, with a slender build. They said he wore dark sunglasses, a leather jacket, blue jeans and covered his hair with a white baseball cap with blue lettering. 

Gregg said he could not discuss the amount of cash the man got away with. The suspect fled on foot, and no injuries were reported.
