Shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, a black man in his 30s wearing a Navy blue suit jacket walked into the bank branch in the 1200 block of South Carrollton (near Oak Street) and gave the teller a note that read, “This is a robbery, give me the money. Don’t test me,” according to the initial NOPD report. She did as he instructed and he left on foot through the front door in a lakebound direction on South Carrollton, the report states.
Further details were not immediately available. Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Second District station at 658-6020 to speak to a detective, or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
