On 9-8-2020 at 1619 hours, an unknown male entered the bank carrying a checkered (black & gray) bag, wearing a white mask, sunglasses, brownish bucket hat, multi-colored vertical striped long-sleeved shirt, and white latex gloves. When the suspect entered the bank, the victim-teller was away from her window, in the back assisting a co-worker. The suspect called out to be assisted and the victim-teller greeted him at her window. Before the victim-teller could instruct the suspect to remove his sunglasses, he presented a demand note which stated something to the effect of “give me all you have”. The victim-teller complied with the suspect’s demand and emptied her till. The suspect watched the victim-teller intently as she emptied her till. The victim-teller reached for the demand note, and the suspect grabbed it and left the bank. The suspect was last seen north on 15th Avenue East. Responding units and K-9 were unable to locate the suspect.
