The search continued late on Tuesday for a suspect in the robbery of a Wells Fargo bank in Rocky Mount.

A masked man entered the bank at 140 Benvenue Road about 2 p.m., police officials said, He indicated he had a weapon, robbed the bank and escaped. Police have not said what was stolen.

The robber wore some type of mask over the lower part of his face and covered his weapon during the hold-up, police said. Detectives were reviewing security footage on Monday afternoon, said Cpl. Brad Summerlin, spokesman for the Rocky Mount Police Department.

“It's unclear what type of weapon was used because the suspect had it covered,” Summerlin said.

No arrest had been reported on Tuesday. Further details have not been released.
