Lexington Police say on July 13th a man entered the Fifth Third Bank on Bryan Station Road and attempted to rob a teller.

"The teller stated that she had her back turned to the front counter when she heard a voice behind her say 'give me all your money'. As she was turning she thought it was a joke from a customer and said 'we don't have any money', says Detective William Persley with Lexington Police Department.

At that point police say the man took off. They continue to look for him and hope someone knows who he is.

"He's described as a thin, white male, wearing a gray hoodie that covered his head and dark round sunglasses and a gray bandanna. He's described by the teller as being 18-19 years old, about 5'8" or 5'9", says Detective Persley.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers at 859-253-2020. It's a free call and they don't want your name, just your information.
