Salisbury Police responded to Park Sterling Bank on Thursday at 1:01 p.m. Thursday in reference to a bank robbery. Police say when they arrived at the bank, located at 401 W. Innes St., the suspect had already left.

The suspect entered the bank and handed the clerk a note and a white trash bag. He then told her this was a robbery and to put all the money from the drawer in the bag. He then implied to her that he had a gun by talking about bullets. He got the money and then left the bank on foot in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a black male, dark skin, 6-foot-2, skinny build, 40-60 years old, wearing a camouflage thick jacket, a military-style boonie hat with a brim and sunglasses.

Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said the same man walked into two other banks — Wells Fargo on West Innes Street and Bank of America just across street from Park Sterling.

Lingle said the man did not rob those other two banks. Police investigators were on the scene at Park Sterling Bank, blocking all of the entrances and exits of the property.

Anyone with information regarding this matter is encourage to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245
