Alpharetta police seek bank robbery suspect



ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Police are asking for help in identifying a suspect who allegedly robbed the Suntrust Bank on North Point Parkway on Jan. 3.

When officers arrived, one of the tellers told police that a man had come into the bank around 4 p.m. and walked directly to her window.

He then passed her a note that read, “I want all your money. I have a gun, I will not harm you if you give me all your money.”

The suspect also spoke in a low tone saying, “Don’t give me bait… Don’t pull the alarm… You have 15 seconds.”

The teller gave the suspect $1,600 in loose bills from her drawer and returned the note. He left the bank. He was last seen running north, toward Total Wine.

The suspect was described as a short black man, in his late 30s or early 40s, with “full facial hair.” He was wearing a grey beanie hat with “Call of Duty” printed in white letters along with a long-sleeved baseball-style shirt with gray sleeves and maroon torso. His pants were a dark color.

No one was injured.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to leave a tip on the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety’s Facebook page or by calling 678-297-6307.
