Police responded to the Versailles Road branch near Parkers Mill Road just after 11 a.m. Thursday.

Officers are searching for a man believed to have committed the robbery.

"A male subject, who we believe to be a white male, ran into the bank yelling threats," Lt. Chris Van Brackel said.

The suspect got away from the scene with cash. Witnesses believed he had a weapon, but the suspect didn't show it.

Police released surveillance photos in hopes someone can identify the suspect, and Lt. Van Brackel said they are working on confirming a more specific description of the vehicle.

Witnesses also believe he ran away toward a nearby apartment complex.

Central Bank remains closed as officers continue their investigation.
