Security cameras caught this image of man police say robbed Fifth Third Bank at 1620 N. Telegraph.
DEARBORN — Police are seeking a man approximately 20 years old who robbed Fifth Third Bank, 1620 N. Telegraph, shortly before 6 p.m. Jan. 18.
Two tellers told police he came in before closing time and waited patiently for the customer ahead of him to complete a transaction. He then approached one of the tellers and passed her a slip of paper that said, “read the note.”
The note demanded $10,000 within 30 seconds, with no tracking devices or dye packs, or he would “start shooting.”
Banks spokesman Jack Riley said the robber did not have a gun, and did not display a weapon.
The teller handed the robber $4,495 in cash; he then left. As he did so the silent alarm was activated and police arrived.
The robber is described as a white, 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build and a bloodshot right eye. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a knit hat with a large letter C in front.
“No one was hurt, and that’s the most important thing,” Riley said.
