The robber banged on the windows and  demanded money.

The bank went into lockdown, and the man ran off without any cash.

Police set up a perimeter in the neighborhood, but were unable to catch the man.

A similar incident occurred at the same bank Friday 14. Police are not sure yet if it is the same person.
