Valdosta - A bank robbery in Valdosta Thursday afternoon.

A man held up the Park Avenue Bank on Baytree Road around 3:30 PM.

He never showed a weapon, but he demanded money from a teller and got it.  A getaway car was waiting for him outside. 

Investigators say the robber is white and was wearing a yellow ball cap. He had a large tattoo on his neck. The getaway car is a dark sedan.  "We have officers and detectives out there canvassing the area. They go and talk to people in these businesses around here and check surveillance video from the other businesses to see if we can capture the vehicle coming in or out. Maybe catch an image of the suspect," says Lt. Bobbi McGraw with the Valdosta Police.

They are still calculating how much money was taken.
