Just after midnight on the morning of September 22 deputies responded to a report of a robbery at a night depository for a bank in Forestdale.

The victim is the manager of a fast food restaurant in the area. She reported that she had gathered the nightly receipts and had driven to the Regions Bank on Tomahawk drive to drop the deposit at the bank night depository.

As she pulled up to the night drop, a black male suspect ran to her car. The suspect pointed a gun at her and demanded the money. Once she gave him the money he fled on foot. The victim drove to a nearby convenience store and called the Sheriff’s Office. She described the suspect as a black male wearing a red hoodie and light colored pants. She also said he had a small tattoo near his right eye.
