A Police Department spokesman Christopher Trim said the man entered the bank about 3:30 p.m. and presented a note to a teller demanding money. No weapon was seen, but the teller, concerned about safety, complied and the man left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to witnesses, the suspect was last seen getting into the passenger side of a vehicle that was driven by an unknown person, police said.

The vehicle was last seen traveling northbound on Franklin Boulevard.

The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 180 to 200 pounds.

The suspect was wearing a black beanie, dark sunglasses, a brown Cleveland Browns football jersey with the number 32 and the word "Brown" across the back over a black long-sleeve shirt, black gloves, baggy dark jeans and white athletic shoes.
