CMPD Searching for Man Who Robbed Dilworth Bank in Broad Daylight on August 27, 2015

From by Anjanette Flowers, August 28, 2015

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and the FBI are on the lookout for a bold robber who held up a busy Charlotte bank right in the middle of the afternoon on Thursday, August 28, 2015.

“It’s pretty shocking to be honest. It’s a pretty busy street. For someone to have the audacity to do that takes a lot of courage,” said Taylor Beringer, a Dilworth resident.


According to investigators, the suspect walked into the PNC Bank on East Boulevard in Dilworth around 3p.m. Thursday.

That’s “one block away from where I live,” said Jim Bailey, who’s lived in Dilworth for more than 30 years.

“It’s a little crazy, said Ryan Mollen who also lives nearby.

Stephanie LaClair agrees, It’s “a little scary, a little disturbing especially for this area.”

Mollen added, “We both live right down the street.”

According to police, the suspect demanded money, indicated that he had a weapon and took off in a car.

“School buses are frequent around here and you think that a parent would be picking up their kid at the sidewalk and all of a sudden someone comes out potentially armed. I mean, that’s a scary situation,” said Beringer.

Anyone with information about the bank robbery to call Crime Stoppers 704-334-1600.
