After the teller complied with the note’s demands, the suspect fled the bank on foot and was last seen running eastbound across Capital Boulevard in the Mini City area.

The suspect is described as an older black male who stands about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He has salt and pepper hair and was wearing dark-colored pants.

Anyone who might be able to identify the suspect or who believes to have seen him is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases. The North Carolina Bankers Association also offers a reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of anyone responsible for robbing a bank or savings institution in North Carolina.
