Arlington County police and the FBI are trying to identify the man who robbed a BB&T bank Monday morning.

The incident occurred at about 9:20 a.m. at the BB&T branch on the 900 block of North Taylor Street, near the Ballston Metro station.

The robber entered the bank and passed a handwritten note to a teller demanding money. He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

The robber did not show a weapon or imply that he had one in his note. There were about five employees and two customers in the bank at the time of the incident, but they were not injured, officials said.

The robber was described as a black male, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a medium build and facial hair. He was wearing glasses, a dark green trench coat, khaki pants, a red scarf and a Boston Red Sox hat.

FBI spokeswoman Lindsay Godwin said the suspect in this incident does not resemble the robbers seen in surveillance photos from other bank robberies in the area.
