A man who said he had a gun robbed the Chevy Chase Bank on Ritchie Highway on Tuesday afternoon, escaping with an undetermined amount of money.

Police say the man entered the bank, in the 7900 block Ritchie Highway, at 3:30 p.m., just before it closed, went up to a teller and handed her a note and a deposit slip. The note said it was a hold-up, demanded $1,500 and said the man had a gun.

Police say the teller started to count out the money. The suspect then demanded the money she had in her hand and also demanded the note and deposit slip back. He left the bank and ran in an unknown direction.

Police say the suspect had been holding a rolled up newspaper, which they believe held a black automatic handgun. Police also said the man is believed to be a former customer of the bank.

The suspect was last seen wearing a brown hat, dark mirror sunglasses, a tan coat, light-blue jeans and penny loafers. The FBI has been contacted and the investigation is continuing.
