Akron Police are seeking a man who robbed a bank by presenting a note to the teller that said, "Give me $2,000 -- I have a bomb and gun."

It happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Charter One Bank in the 300 block of S. Broadway Street.

Authorities say the teller handed the suspect money, including a dye pack, before he fled the scene on foot.

The suspect was wearing a black "North Face" jacket and black skull cap.

Anybody with information is asked to contact authorities.
