A woman was robbed Saturday morning as she tried to make a deposit at an upper York County bank.
York-Poquoson sheriff’s investigators say a woman drove up to the night deposit drawer at the Bank of America at 1801 Richmond Road around 9:50 a.m. and was approached by the suspect, who demanded the money she was going to deposit. The victim told police the suspect held something in his hand as he demanded the deposit bag, although she could not tell what it was. After several demands that she give up the cash, the woman complied and the suspect took off on foot towared the Wendy’s on Richmond Road.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male with short hair, approximately 6′- 6’2″ tall and a medium athletic build. He wore a tan shirt, dark pants and dark athletic shoes. He also had what appeared to be a black nylon stocking pulled over his face.
Police were able to obtain images of the robbery from a bank surveillance camera that was trained on the victim’s car.
