Macon police are investigating a Thursday bank robbery at the Bank of America branch at the corner of Cherry and Third streets in downtown Macon.
The bank was robbed at 12:08 p.m., police said.
The suspect is a black male with a dark complexion with distinctive hair shaped in a “V” style. He is between 35 and 40 years old and stands between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches with a husky build of at least 230 pounds, police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet said. He was wearing a red golf shirt with blue and white horizontal stripes, blue and white tennis shoes and khaki shorts.
The man walked into the bank and did not display a weapon. He demanded money, and a teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash. Nobody was injured during the robbery, she said.

The suspect fled through the bank’s Third Street exit. Officers searched Cherry Street but so far have been unable to locate the robber. At one point, they thought they had the suspect cornered near the Georgia Children’s Museum and the building site for the new Tubman African American Museum, but that man turned out not to be the bank robber, officials said.
