At about 12:38 p.m., police responded to a call at the Union Bank located in the 5000 block of George Washington Memorial Highway, Route 17.

Witnesses told police a male, described as about 6-feet tall, very muscular and wearing a dark-colored mask entered the bank.

When he approached the teller and inferred he had a gun,  he was given an undisclosed amount of money and left on foot. No gun was actually displayed and no one was injured, police said.

The man was last seen wearing a dark colored mask, a hoodie and a yellow safety vest.
