Tyler Bank Robbed At Gunpoint

Around 1:00 this afternoon, a man dressed in a dark suit and tie, walked into a Tyler bank, showed a dark handgun and demanded a teller's cash.

It happened at the Regions Bank branch on Tyler's WSW loop. Police arrived at the scene quickly, but the suspect has not yet been found. There were about a dozen people, customers and employees, in the bank at the time of the robbery. Police say it didn't last long.

Witnesses saw the man run across the parking lot of Terry's Furniture next to the bank. That was the last time he was seen.   

 He is a black male, 5-foot-10, medium build. Witnesses say he was wearing a dark suit, white shirt and striped tie. He also was wearing sunglasses.    

If you saw anything this afternoon that may be connected to this, or have any information about on the robbery, contact the Tyler Police Department.
