Man with ‘drawn’ beard robs bank

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington police have released surveillance photos of the person accused of robbing the NewBridge Bank on South College Road just before 10am Thursday.

The man went in the back door and walked to the counter.  He threatened to pull out a weapon if he didn't get money, but he never showed the weapon.  The teller gave the robber cash and he took off out the back door.  None of the witnesses saw which way he went.

When WECT.com was on the scene, as many as ten police cars surrounded the bank.

Police say the robber looks to be about 5'8" tall with a medium build.  He had on dark clothing and tan shoes.  He was also wearing a doo-rag and a dark ball cap.  The man had a beard, but one witness said it looked like it was "drawn on."

Call 910-343-3600 if you can help or text your tip to CRIMES (274637) with the subject line of "Tip708."
