Description:

On May 24, 2018, at 5:06 pm, a man entered the Huntington National Bank located at 1816 N. High Street and went directly to the teller counter with a hooded sweatshirt synched over his face and threw a note onto the counter in front of a teller. A second teller immediately recognized that the bank was being robbed by observing the suspect hiding his face upon entrance to the bank and presenting a note to the other teller and hit the silent alarm button. The first teller read the note and complied with the demands of the robber by giving the robber money and a dye pack. Once the robber had the money and dye pack, he exited the bank and fled northbound on N. High St. and then eastbound on Campus Place. At some point, the dye pack exploded and the robber dropped some of the money. The robber was described as a male black, medium complexion with acne, 19-22 years old, 5’6” to 5’9”, 140-160 lbs., wearing a black hooded Ohio state sweatshirt with a red “O” that was synched around his face, blue jeans with holes, and unknown shoes. The robber may have fled on a bicycle eastbound on Campus Place.
