The men entered the First South Bank, at 300 Sunset Ave., around 1:50 p.m., police said. One man stayed in the lobby, while the second gave the teller a note demanding money.

The men took an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot through the rear door facing Sunset Avenue, investigators said.

No weapons were used in the robbery, and no one was injured, police said.

One man was described as black, in his 30s to 40s, 5 feet 4 inches tall. He wore a black jacket, blue jeans and purple toboggan.

    It's odd that these guys are so short. I would check the people who are playing guard on the city league basketball teams.

    It's 1:30 as I type this, but the article says "The men entered the First South Bank, at 300 Sunset Ave., around 1:50 p.m., police said."

    You gotta love Rocky Mount... all the digital cameras and inexpensive HD camera systems out there and that lousy bank still has black and white CCTV???? Based on the quality of the photo, I would also guess they are still using VHS too. LOL.... way to look out for your tellers First South! Looking at those pictures, I would say that the suspect is either Kermit the frog, or Santa Claus... hard to tell.
