GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The First Citizens Bank on Third Street in Greenville was robbed at knifepoint Thursday afternoon.
Just before 2 p.m., police said a suspect entered, displayed a knife and demanded money.
“When you have a crime like this in the middle of the day, typically the suspects are desperate,” Greenville Police Public Information Officer Kristen Hunter said.
The teller turned the money over to the man who got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Two customers were in the bank, but no one was injured.
“We are very fortunate that no one was injured in this case,” Hunter said. “Obviously the people involved are a bit shaken up.”
The suspect is described as a black male wearing a white/red flannel shirt and tan pants.
Greenville police said they are looking at surveillance footage.
