He allegedly asked the teller to help him cash a check, then handed over a demand note, pulled out a red-and-black pistol and shoved it in the teller’s back, police said. He ordered the staffer to fill up his gray-and-blue backpack with cash then fled on foot.

Police said the man, in his 20s, was wearing a camo balaclava, a black Nike jacket with a hood, black pants and black shoes.
