— Police asked the public's help in finding a man who robbed an RBC Centura bank branch at 4000 Capital Blvd. on Wednesday afternoon.

The robber, whose image was clearly captured by a surveillance camera, was described as a black man in his 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing an estimated 140 pounds.

He was wearing a black jacket, a dark knit cap and dark work pants. He had a goatee and what appeared to be two or three days' beard growth. Two tattoos were seen on the suspect – one depicted four or five teardrops under his left eye, and one on his neck showed a dagger that appeared to be going through a rose or a spider web.

Police asked that anyone with information that could help the investigation call Raleigh police at 919-890-3555 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-CRIME (2746).
