Durham police are investigating a robbery of the BB&T at 1107 N.C. Hwy. 54 on Thursday.

About 10 a.m., police say, a man walked into the bank and gave a teller a note demanding money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was seen.

He was described as a black man in his mid to late 50s, with scruffy salt and pepper facial hair. He wore a blue jacket, green ball cap and blue, white and yellow plaid pajama pants. The description is similar to that of the man who tried to rob a Yadkin Bank on Wednesday and last week successfully robbed the Carter Bank & Trust.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator K. Owens at 919-560-4583, ext. 29365, Cpl. J. Butler at 919-560-4583, ext. 29357 or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
