PONTIAC (WWJ) – Oakland County authorities are looking for tips to catch a suspect in an attempted bank robbery.
Sheriff’s officials say it happened shortly before 12:30 p.m. Friday at a PNC bank branch on N. Perry near Glenwood in Pontiac.
Investigators were told that man entered the bank and presented the teller with a note
demanding money. The teller then walked away from the area and the subject fled out of the bank on foot without any cash.
