No one was arrested as of 6:30 p.m. Monday after an armed robbery at U.S. Bank in Dickinson.
No one was injured during the incident, which occurred at about 5 p.m. Monday, Dickinson Police Department Senior Patrol Officer Brian Koskovich said.
As red and blue lights from police cruisers lit the sky near the bank’s Second Street location, passersby stopped to ask police if they were in danger.
Nobody is in danger “at this point,” Koskovich said.
Investigators with flashlights surrounded the building while other officers talked to pedestrians.
Police say the suspect was believed to have had a pistol.
The suspect was reportedly wearing a hood, but witnesses were able to see his eyebrows, which were described as sandy blond, said Lt. Rod Banyai.
“All they could see was part of his eyes,” Banyai said. “They couldn’t see his face.”
The suspect was described as a caucasian male, about six feet tall and between 40 and 50 years of age, Banyai said. The suspect is reportedly believed to weigh between 180 and 200 pounds. He was wearing brown corduroy pants, a brown polo coat, a brown hooded sweatshirt, black gloves and brown shoes, Banyai added.
“From what we know at this time, he was the only person involved,” Banyai said.
Firemen were also on the scene and as of 7:30 p.m. no one had been arrested and police said it could take an additional four hours to finish collecting evidence.
Police would not release any other information as of press time Monday.
