Chapel Hill bank robber sought
Posted December 23, 2011
Chapel Hill, N.C. — Police were searching Friday for a man who robbed a BB&T bank in Chapel Hill.
A man walked into the BB&T at 143 E. Rosemary St. at about 9 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. Police said he implied that he had a weapon, but no weapon was seen.
No injuries were reported, and the robber fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
It was unclear if there were any customers in the bank at the time.
The robber was described as black, in his 20s, about 5-foot-7 or 5-foot-8 and 140 to 150 pounds. He had short hair, was wearing a black dress shirt and black pants and had a white mask that witnesses described as a pillow case with holes cut out so he could see.
