downtown, but he didn't actually hold up a bank. Rather, he pulled a
handgun on employees inside a Peoples Bancorp administrative office at
206 Scammel Street.
gunman demanded money, employees had to tell him there was no money because
he was simply inside an office. He then fled on foot across Scammel and
north in the alley between Scammel and Wooster; Second and Third.

his 40s, about 5'8", with a medium build and medium length brown hair.
He was wearing blue jeans, a black long-sleeve t-shirt, a blue ball cap,
and had on sunglasses.
