A Wells Fargo bank in Buckhead was held up by a man Friday who allegedly made it known that he was armed.

The teller at the bank, which is located at 3393 Northside Parkway just south of West Paces Ferry Road, was presented a note that demanded money by a tall, black male dressed in black.

According to Atlanta Police Sgt. Greg Lyon, the teller believed that the suspect “was armed and that she would be shot if she did not comply.”

The man escaped with an undisclosed amount of money around 11 a.m.

Any information on the case can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).

Persons do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $2,000 for the arrest and indictment of the suspects.

Why don't banks put in bulletproof teller windows, much like convenience stores? This might help put the skids on some of these too often bank robberies.
