Just before 11AM Thursday morning, a man entered the KeyBank on Lexington Avenue, told tellers he didn't want any problems and demanded cash. He then fled on foot down Lexington Ave. toward Trimble Rd.

Police describe the suspect as a young man in his early 20's, wearing a grey hoodie, jeans and black and white Adidas sneakers. The man was either biracial or hispanic and wore no mask as he robbed the bank. Police are now reviewing security footage from inside the bank and have witness statements from tellers and people outside.

 Sergeant Doug Noblet of the Mansfield Police Department says police and investigators were stretched a little thin with the robbery coming on the heels of this morning's shooting at Harwood Apartments.

"We are getting by," said Noblet, who was himself investigating the shooting before making his way to Lexington Ave. "We have assistance from the FBI."

Police are looking for useful security footage from nearby businesses and are hoping to receive helpful reports from more witnesses.

"There are people out there who probably saw it and just didn't know what they were watching," says Noblet.

Noblet says the suspect never showed witnesses a weapon, no one was harmed during the robbery and that the bank tellers involved were only "shook up."
