UPDATE: Rock Hill bank robber threatened teller

The HeraldFebruary 5, 2014 

— Police say an unmasked man walked into a Rock Hill Bank of America, presented a teller with a note saying he had a gun and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities were sent to the Bank of America on Cherry Road at about 2:30 p.m. for reports of an armed robbery, said Executive Officer Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department. The man, possibly in his 60s, handed a note to a 21-year-old female teller.

In the note, he wrote, "You know what time it is. Clean your drawer out no (expletive) move i will pull my gun," according to the police report released Thursday.

The note also said the suspect knew where the teller lived and told her not to push any "buttons" for three minutes.

"He never showed (a gun)," Bollinger said, and "never did the whole hands in the jacket routine."

The teller gave the robber cash, and then fled, Bollinger said. Police are not disclosing how much money was taken.

On Thursday morning, Bollinger said police still didn't have any leads on the man's identity.

Police initially said he left in a black Kia Rio, but later determined he fled on foot.

Details on how many employees and customers were in the bank at the time was not readily available. No injuries were reported.
