FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — An armed man entered a bank in a busy commercial area Tuesday afternoon and demanded money, police said.
Fishers Police Department was called to a robbery about 3:30 p.m. at Regions Bank, 7447 E. 116th St. That’s on the west side of Fishers just east of Allisonville Road.
A man believed to be in his 30s or 40s entered the bank with a handgun and demanded money from a telller. The teller complied. Police said the man left in a passenger vehicle with an undisclosed amount of money. The man was wearing a coat and a hat.
“This is a highly populated area. We’re very thankful that nobody was injured in this. There is a daycare right behind the bank. There’s a heavily-traveled section of roadway in Fishers. What we’re hoping is that somebody saw something and can give us a call and give us some information,” said Sgt. Tom Weger with the Fishers Police Department.
“Yes! That’s very scary! It was right next door to the daycare that my niece goes to. It was very scary,” said Latosha Clemons who picked her niece up from a daycare next door.
Six tellers were in the bank during the incident, but no one was hurt.
Fishers police released a photo of a suspect from the bank’s surveillance footage.
Anyone with information was asked to call Hamilton County Communications at 317-773-1282.
