ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Surveillance released by police shows a man in what appears to be a Batman mask robbing a DoCo Credit Union.

The robbery happened Monday just before 9:15 a.m.

Investigators said the suspect was about 5'7" tall, and entered the bank wearing a hoodie with his face covered and armed with a handgun.

According to officials, the man demanded money from an employee and got away with cash.

Dougherty High School was placed on lockdown for a short time as a precaution.

Several employees and customers were inside the bank at the time.

One of those customers was Travis Hall, who said he was opening a checking account inside at the time of the robbery.

Hall said he didn't realize that the bank was being robbed until after the suspect left the building and employees locked the doors.

Police said no shots were fired during the robbery. There were no immediate leads stated by officials on the suspect.
