Police seek attempted bank robber

Updated: Friday, August 23 2013, 04:15 PM EDT



Police in Guernsey County are seeking an armed man who was carrying a bag when he attempted to enter a bank.

According to a news release from the Cambridge Police Department, officers went to the U.S. Bank East Branch around 5 p.m. on Thursday after a report of an attempted robbery.

The bank had just closed for the day and employees had locked the doors when a man drove up to the bank in a black Chrysler Town & Country van.

The man got out of the van and walked up to the bank. According to the news release, the man was seen carrying a bag and a gun as he approached the doors.

After pulling on the main doors and not being able to enter the bank, the man went back to the van and drove away. He was last seen traveling south on Interstate 77.

The man is described as white, between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slender build. He was wearing blue jeans and a dark-colored sweatshirt with the hood up, covering his head.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cambridge Police Department at 740-439-4431.
