According to police, a man entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 2280 Cascade Road around 10 a.m. and handed a note to a teller. The note demanded that she hand over one hundred-dollar bills and included a threat that read, “Don’t make me hurt you.”
According to Atlanta police Sgt. Greg Lyon, the teller gave only five- and ten-dollar bills and this angered the subject. He then grabbed a woman from the customer service desk and held a knife to her side while exclaiming he would kill her if he wasn’t given the proper denominations.
The teller complied and the subject fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. There were no injuries reported.
The subject is described as a black male with dark skin, standing 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-9 and weighing 140 to 170 pounds.Any information on the case can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).
