COLUMBUS, Ga. (WXTX) - The Wachovia Bank on 18th Street was robbed around 11:20 Tuesday morning.
Witnesses say the suspect acted as if he had a weapon, but never showed it. He approached a teller inside demanding money. The teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money, and put a red dye pack in a bag.
No one was injured.
The suspect fled the scene in a faded blue or grey Cadillac. The bank robber is described as a black male, between the 40 and 45 years of age, about 6'1 tall, and weighing 160-190 pounds. He also had on a white baseball cap, with a small black emblem on the front, a gray t-shirt, and witnesses note the suspect had a small black mustache.
This bank is right across the street from Columbus Regional. It's been the target of armed robbery twice in less than two weeks.
