N. Fayetteville SunTrust bank robbed

Fayetteville Police are investigating a bank robbery that occurred just before 2:30 this afternoon at the SunTrust bank near the Fayette Pavilion off Ga. Highway 85 and Ellis Road.

A gunman entered the bank with a handgun and left in what was believed to be an older model maroon Chevy Impala with dark-tinted windows, according to initial police radio accounts of the scene.

The gunman was described as a light-skinned black male wearing a “wife beater” T-shirt, about 5’8” tall, about 150 pounds, wearing a yellow construction helmet with a red bandanna underneath. He left the scene with another suspect in the vehicle, but the second suspect’s description was not immediately available.

No injuries were reported at the scene, police said.

Police have searched the parking lots at the Pavilion in an effort to locate the suspects. They also are investigating if a crash just north of the bank on Hwy. 85 might be related to the bank robbery, as one of the suspects took off from the wreck on foot but was arrested shortly thereafter.

This is the second bank robbery in Fayetteville within a week. The RBC Centura Bank on Ga. Highway 314 north was hit by a crew of three armed gunmen July 8 just after 10 a.m., and they got away in a blue sport utility vehicle, police said.
