FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Around 9:45 Wednesday morning, a white man in his 30s or 40s walked into the PNC bank on Coventry Lane like any other customer.

Only this patron showed a teller a note demanding cash, then ran outside, heading west into the neighborhood of the villas behind the bank.

Haverhill Elementary School was locked down as a precaution, but there's no indication the children there are in any danger.

Unlike other recent bank robberies, this suspect did not show a weapon and did not hurt anyone.

It also appears this may be his first bank robbery in our area.

Fort Wayne police say the suspect looks like a white man in his 30s or 40s, about six feet tall and about 200 to 250 pounds, with some reddish facial hair.

He was wearing a black puffy coat, black swishy pants with a white stripe down the legs, sunglasses or ski goggles with a yellow tint and a scarf.

He's also right handed and took the note back with him.

Police were able to track him with a K-9 unit for about five blocks, before the trail went abruptly cold.

That typically means the suspect got into a car and drove off.

No one was hurt in the robbery.
