Then he jumped the teller counter and demanded money, Croon said. He implied he had a weapon, but didn’t show one.

The suspect was described as slim black man between 25 and 35, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 and 150 pounds, according to the FBI. He was wearing a yellow “IOWA” hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.
