— A man passed a note to a teller at a Bank of America in Raleigh's Cameron Village Friday, then fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

The robbery happened just after 2 p.m. at the branch at 321 Oberlin Road.

Police were looking for a black man about 5 feet 8 inches tall. Surveillance images from the bank show him with facial hair and wearing a gray knit hat, yellow or beige sweater with maroon stripes and a black or gray blazer.

Police asked anyone who recognizes the man in the pictures to call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.

    I agree with blahblahblah. Could the woman at the gas station be dumb enough to do that as a distraction? Nah, maybe? Or.... they robber just took the fire as an opportunity to rob the bank?

    not to mention there was ANOTHER accident in the middle of BOTH the gas station and the bank on the same road. we WERE AT the gas station when lil mama ran into the pump, then we fled QUICK and looped around headed up oberlin where we passed another accident infront of the library THEN saw the bank robbery. we we're in shocked and dazed the whole time, what a day.

    "Can't help but wonder if the fire at the gas station and the bank robbery are connected. They both happened at the same time and are only about a mile apart." -blah

    Sounds like a Conspiracy to me.. I bet the two woman fighting downtown that fired a shot into the fire station and almost hit the sleeping fireman are also related. Think about it... The entire fire department would be at the funeral, and not able to put out the gas station fire, and the bank robbers would get off free... NOT ;-)
