    It is unclear if there is more than one suspect according to police radio transmissions – however, one suspect fled on foot through nearby backyards as police responded in under one minute.

    A resident told YC the actor was seen in his backyard momentarily but fled before police arrived.

    The man is described as a black male, approximately 5’4 in his 30’s wearing black gloves, a black hat and carrying a bag with an undisclosed amount of United States currency.

    The bank was still closed as of 12:15 p.m. Wednesday as detectives investigate.
