MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man tried to rob the Bank of America branch at Main Street and Peabody Place in downtown Memphis, police said, and they’re asking for help finding him.

The man came into the bank around 3 p.m. Thursday and wrote a note asking for $20,000, police said.

He insinuated that he had a weapon and threatened to shoot the teller.

The suspect ran north on Main Street without getting any money. Police think he may have gotten into a vehicle.

Memphis Police later released surveillance footage from the bank showing the suspect passing the note to the teller.

The suspect was wearing a red baseball cap, a gray New Orleans Saints hoodie and dark pants. He was described as a black man in his early 20s, 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds.
