Riverdale bank robbed

By Ed Brock

An armed man wearing a theatrical mask and a jumpsuit that matched the color of a late-model Cadillac believed to be his getaway car walked into a Riverdale bank and demanded money.

The man entered the BB&T Bank on Ga. Highway 85 around 9 a.m. Friday waving a small, dark colored and ordered the customers and employees to the floor, according to FBI spokesman Joe Parris.

He forced a teller to put an undisclosed amount of money into a dark satchel bag and then may have made his escape in a beige 1995 to 1997 Cadillac El Dorado.

The man wore a beige one-piece work outfit. While no witnesses saw the man enter the car, Parris said it was seen in the parking lot before the robbery and was gone shortly after the robbery.

Also, the man wore a ball cap and is described as a short, slender black male in his mid 20s to mid 30s. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the Atlanta Field Office of the FBI at (404) 679-9000.
