A man robbed a Chase Bank Tuesday afternoon by threatening to set off a bomb.
Now police are searching for the middle-aged suspect and they are asking for the public’s help.
No one was injured in the incident, which happened about 1:15 p.m. at the branch at 3780 Old Norcross Road in Duluth, according to the Gwinnett County police.
Investigators said the suspect gave a teller a note indicating that he had a bomb and wanted money.
“The teller provided a small amount of cash to the suspect who fled the bank on foot,” police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith said.
No one saw the man exit or enter a vehicle, Cpl. Smith said.
The suspect is described as a white man in his late 40s or early 50s, of average height and build. The suspect wore blue jeans, a tan jacket, a black knit cap, and sunglasses, Cpl. Smith said.
Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to contact the Gwinnett County Police Department Robbery Unit detectives at (770) 513-5300, or Crime Stoppers at (404) 557-8477.
