Albany-- Investigators say this bank robber is suprising, because of his age.  He is described as being between 50 and 60 years old.

But he had a gun, and proved it when an employee tried to stop him from robbing the bank.

This man walked into the front door of the First State Bank of Albany on North Slappey Boulevard about 9:30 Friday morning. He gave a note to the teller, demanding money. The teller gave him money, and he started to leave. But an employee decided to try to stop the robber.

APD Lt. Kenn Singleton said "He did exit the bank. One of the employees gave chase. He pulled a small handgun, and told that employee to get back. He was last seen driving a small type of red vehicle south on Slappey Boulevard."

Crime scene investigators take molds of footprints left in the muddy yard next to the bank. The robber had a car waiting in the Blackbeard's Seafood Restaurant parking lot next door, and Investigators think he left the footprints.

The bank robber is described as between 50 to 60 years old, 5-foot-9 inches tall, and 150 pounds. He was wearing a white or gray golf hat and tweed jacket. Investigators say the bank robber got a small amount of money, but are not releasing the exact amount.

 If you have any information about this bank robbery, please call the Albany Police.
