Charlotte-Mecklenburg police and the FBI are looking for a man who robbed a bank Wednesday morning about a block from the Square in Charlotte’s uptown.
The robbery was reported about 9:30 a.m. at the Fifth Third Bank branch in the 200 block of South Tryon Street, near Fourth Street.
FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch said a man handed a note to a teller demanding money. The man then fled, and there was no report of a getaway vehicle, Lynch said. No injuries were reported.
The suspect is described as a black male, about 5 feet 10 and 240 pounds, with a groomed beard. His age is estimated at 35 to 45. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a light-colored flannel shirt, and light-colored pants.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600, or the Charlotte office of the FBI, 704-672-6100.
