According to police reports, a man forced his way into the bank at about 8:15 a.m. and threatened employees with a gun.  The man got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was hurt during the incident, investigators said.

The gunman is described as about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 225 pounds. He was wearing black sneakers, a black hooded jacket and black pants with a camouflage mask during the robbery.
