Area law enforcement has asked for help with identifying the suspect who robbed a BB&T Bank on Oakdale Road Friday afternoon.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Armed Robbery Unit and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force have released photos of the suspect who robbed the bank branch at 1814 Oakdale Road around 1:30 p.m.

A man in a black and red Atlanta Falcons ball cap, red jacket and red pants approached a bank employee and gave them a note demanding money, police said.

Once he had the money, the suspect left on foot. Police described the suspect as a black male, likely between 35 and 40, about 5’10” in height with thin build and medium skin tone.

Anyone with information about this case or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or FBI Charlotte at 704-672-6100.
