RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man caught on surveillance cameras attempting to rob a bank.

At about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, the suspect entered the Wachovia bank at 7801 Falls of Neuse Road and approached a teller, police said. He produced a note announcing a robbery and implied he was armed with a weapon.

The suspect, however, left the bank prior to completing the robbery. He was last seen fleeing the area on foot.

The suspect is described as a black man in his early twenties with a slender build. He is about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall. The suspect has close-cut hair and was wearing sunglasses, a gray or off-white colored T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone who might know the suspect’s identity is asked to call the Raleigh Police Department Detective Division at 919-996-3555 or Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-HELP. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.
