LIMA — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man that attempted to rob a Chase Bank branch in Lima on Wednesday.
Lima Police Department originally responded to the bank at 121 W. High St. at 12:20 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a robbery.
A man walked in, approached a teller and demanded money. The teller immediately pushed the alarm, which alerted police. The man panicked and fled without any money.
Officials said they do not believe the man was carrying a weapon at the time. They do not have anyone in custody in connection with the incident, and there were no injuries.
As the photo indicates, the would-be robber was a white man wearing a large black coat, a black sweater with a few white stripes, a camouflage-patterned hat and bright blue-and-black gloves with the bottom half of his face covered.
Police ask anyone who recognizes the man from the photo to immediately contact them at 419-221-5264 or Detective Kent Miller at 419-221-5289.
