UPDATED AT 5:04 p.m.: Police describe the suspect as a slim black male wearing all black. FPD says he went into the bank, displayed a firearm and demanded money and ran away.
“We believe he’s still on foot so we set up a perimeter. We searched the area with a k-9, we also got trooper three up in the air in an attempt to locate anyone in the area matching that description. No one was injured and we do not believe there is a threat to the public at this time,” explained Sgt. Andrew Alcorn with the Frederick Police Department.
Police continue to investigate. If anyone witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time of the robbery, you’re encouraged to contact police.
The bank teller alerted police with a button designed to alert authorities in robbery situations.
