Roanoke police are investigating a Saturday morning robbery in which a woman claimed a man stole her cash outside a Melrose Avenue bank, authorities said.
Police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said officers were called to the SunTrust bank in the 2200 block of Melrose Avenue Northwest at 7:04 a.m. When they arrived, they found a woman who said she was robbed by a man with a gun as she went to make a deposit.
Johnson said the woman told officers the man was about 6 feet tall and wore dark pants, a tan jacket and a ski mask.
Police did not disclose how much money the man took, but said he ran north on 23rd Street and then west on Orange Avenue. Officers have not made an arrest.
Nobody was hurt during the robbery, Johnson said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Roanoke Police Department at 853-5959.
