The suspect went to an open counter station and handed the teller a note demanding cash, officials said. He is said to have threatened her with a gun.

After the teller complied, FBI officials said the suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and was seen running into a nearby wooded area.

Witnesses described the suspect as a black male in his early 20s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and of medium build.

FBI officials released surveillance photos of the “Big Shades Bandit” in disguise in hopes someone would recognize him.
