Police are seeking help from the public in finding the identity of a man who held up a grocery store bank over the weekend in Wadsworth.

The robbery happened at the Huntington Bank branch inside Giant Eagle, 825 Ambassador Drive, on Saturday afternoon, just after 3:20 p.m. Wadsworth police Lt. Rob Wyrick said the man — who was captured wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap on security cameras — passed a note to a teller demanding cash. No one was injured in the exchange.

Wyrick said there was no report about how much money was taken.

Police have no leads on the suspect, Wyrick said. As captured on security footage, he appeared to be a white man who stood at about 5 feet, 11 inches. He had a medium build and appeared to be in his late 20s. He wore a light-colored shirt under a dark, hooded sweatshirt, as well as blue jeans and brown shoes. The baseball cap he wore had an Oakland Raiders insignia, and his sunglasses had gold rims.

“Certainly Giant Eagle was pretty busy on Saturday when this happened,” Wyrick said. “This was bold on the perpetrator’s part.”

Witnesses said he had reddish or brown hair that was possibly cut in a Mohawk style, and he had thin facial hair.

Police asked the public to report tips to the police dispatch at (330) 334-1511. Alternatively, anonymous information can be left in voicemail at (330) 335-2769.
