The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department is investigating a bank robbery at the Wells Fargo on Abercorn Street.

At about 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, officers responded to the bank after it was reported a suspect entered the store and pointed a gun at the tellers. The suspect demanded money, the tellers complied and he then left the scene on foot toward Magnolia Street.

The suspect is described as a black male with a slim build. During the incident, he wore a black shirt wrapped around his face, a brown hat, a blue jacket and light blue latex gloves. He also carried a black trash bag in his hand.

Wells Fargo management is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity can call 911. A confidential tip line is also open directly to investigators at 912.525.3124.

Information can also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020. CrimeStoppers tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
