Maryland State Police are asking the public to help identify an armed man who robbed a bank while dressed as construction worker.

Police said the man walked into a BB&T bank, in Fallston, Md., north of Baltimore, on the morning of Nov. 5, wearing a white hard hat, yellow and orange safety vest, and carrying a black duffel bag. From the bag, the man pulled out a black "bull pub" style shotgun, police said, and demanded money and told the employees and customers to get on the floor.

The robber took an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller's drawers and coin vault. He then fled the scene on foot, heading north on Belair Road toward Fallston Common Drive.

The man was described as a white, about 5-foot-11, with a stocky build. In addition to the construction worker gear, the man wore a gray sweatshirt and faded blue jeans.
