Posted November 14, 2011
Fayetteville, N.C. — Police were searching for a man who robbed a Fayetteville bank Monday morning.
A man walked into the First Citizens Bank branch at 126 Broadfoot Ave. at about 9:45 a.m., handed a teller a note demanding money and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
The robber is described as a light-skinned black man in his teens, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7, with a slim build. Witnesses said he apparently painted on a fake mustache and goatee, and he had a tattoo of two teardrops under his right eye.
He was wearing a gray Detroit ball cap, a white shirt with gold lettering, light-colored jeans and black Converse shoes with white bottoms.
Police said they are investigating whether the man is linked to other recent bank robberies.
Anyone with information about the First Citizens robbery is asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).
