Update: Akron Police have identified the suspected robber of the Fifth Third Bank along South Canton Road as 55-year-old Gary R. Neal of Pocantico Avenue in Akron.
Just before 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, Akron Police say a man walked into the Fifth Third Bank branch at 576 South Canton Road and demanded money from a bank teller.
Reports are the man, described as a white male between 40 and 50-years-old, handed the teller a note that demanded an undisclosed amount of cash. Employees told police the suspect said he had a gun, but they did not see one. After the teller handed the suspect cash, he fled. T
APD Lieutenant Rick Edwards says the F.B.I. is now handling the case, but that anyone with information or who may recognize the suspect (pictured) should call Akron Police.
