The Capital City Bank branch at 1417 N. Main St. was robbed Tuesday afternoon by a man who got an undisclosed amount of cash and was still at-large, Gainesville police Lt. Will Halvosa said.

The robbery occurred about 1:45 p.m. when the robber wrote a demand for money on a deposit slip and handed it to a teller.

Halvosa said the man did not show a weapon. Police are not certain if he drove off after the robbery or walked away from the bank.

Officers were stationed in the immediate area but no one fitting the description of the robber was spotted.

Halvosa said bank surveillance video captured images of the man. Police were also reviewing video from neighboring businesses in a search for other clues.

The man was white, 35- to 45-years-old, slim, and 5-feet-11 to 6-feet tall with dirty blond hair. Halvosa said the man wore a blue-and-white baseball cap, a white shirt and camouflage pants.
