A man tried to rob a Bank of America branch on Crabtree Boulevard on Tuesday morning, but police say he got away empty-handed.
Police said the man passed a note to a teller demanding money, then fled on foot at about 10:20 a.m. Police initially indicated that the teller had complied with the note, but said later in the day that the robbery was unsuccessful.
Police say the man was black, stands between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-4, and was wearing a plaid shirt and a snap-brim cap with the brim down and a decorative pin on the front.
The bank is at 2499 Crabtree Blvd., just off Capital Boulevard.
