Authorities say a man armed with what appeared to be a gun entered the bank around 10 a.m. and demanded money. He then fled in a beat-up, dark-colored car driven by another man.
The suspect who entered the bank is described as an African American man wearing a long black wig, baggy jeans and a dark blue and black shirt. A description of the man in the car has not been released.
