BEDFORD, Ohio – The US Bank at 680 Broadway Avenue in Bedford was robbed Monday by a lone man claiming to have a gun.

The man walked into the bank just before 4 p.m. and handed a note to the teller. The note read: “I’m armed I don’t care about my life or yours just give me the money. No dye pack.” During the robbery, he told the teller to “Give me the money” and then repeated “Hurry up” a number of times.

At the time of the robbery he was wearing a navy blue hoodie, sunglasses with mirrored frames, light blue knit gloves and dark-colored loose-fitting pants.
