The BB&T bank on Albemarle Road was almost robbed on Friday after the suspect left the bank before he took any money.

According to authorities, a man entered the bank while wearing a white painter's mask shortly after 2:00 Friday afternoon. He passed to a teller a note demanding cash, but left before he collected.

The suspect is described as a black male wearing a gold and white colored sweatsuit, a grey hat, and a painter's mask.

Authorities are trying to determine if this robbery is connected to a robbery at the same bank on August 29, which occurred under similar circumstances.

If you have any information about this case, you are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (704) 334-1600.
