The bank’s staff said that the bank robber handed the teller a note which had the words ‘assault’ and ‘money’ written on it. He then took the cash and fled the crime scene on foot.

The same man robbed a Circle K two days later. This time also the robber handed the store clerk a note. “Give me all the money and a pack of 305’s 100’s please,” the note read, according to the police officials investigating the case.

During the store loot, the suspect was wearing a police hat.
