A man with a clown mask holds up a Lexington Bank and police are still searching for him.

It happened at around 11:45 on Monday at the Fifth Third Bank on Versailles Road, at Alexandria Drive.

He was wearing a mask normally reserved for Halloween, but for the people inside the bank at the time, the scare was very real.

Witnesses say a six foot tall man wearing a clear plastic mask and a blonde wig walked into the bank, went straight to the teller, and pulled out a gun and demanded money.

Witnesses say the man was in and out of the bank in under a minute.

Police used a K9 and a helicopter to help look for the man but at this time no arrests have been made.
