An allegedly armed man robbed an Annapolis bank Monday and forced a lockdown at an elementary school, while police searched for him.

The man entered Severn Savings Bank in the 1900 block of 1917 West St. at 10:45 a.m. A teller told police he displayed a handgun. He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, police said. Mills-Parole Elementary School on Chinquapin Round Road was placed on lockdown for several hours, while officers searched the area. The suspect has not been found.

The suspect is described as an African-American male in his mid-50s. He is about 6 feet tall and weighs about 250 pounds. He has a full beard and glasses. He was wearing a royal blue baseball cap, gray zip-up hooded sweat shirt, with a blue shirt underneath with white lettering, white or tan pants, and white sneakers.
