Raleigh police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a BB&T Bank branch Tuesday morning.

The masked, armed suspect walked into the bank at 8501 Brier Creek Parkway shortly after 9:30 a.m., approached a teller and demanded money. The man, who was captured on security video, fled after the teller complied.

    "Why haven't i heard of a bank with glass separation being robbed?? Maybe cause it works!"

    Tell that to the employees at the State College BB&T on Hillsborough St. They've been robbed many times and are behind a glass cage.

    Why don't all banks put the employees behind glass? Those branches dont bother me at all.

    A turquoise or aqua Honda Civic? He NEEDS the loot to get a paint job at least. Who can blame the guy!
