ETHELSVILLE, Ala. (WCBI) – A mid-morning attempted bank robbery shakes up a West Alabama town.

Around 9 :00A.M. Tuesday, a lone Black male entered the West Alabama Bank on Main Street in Ethelsville claiming  to have a weapon and demanding money.

When tellers stalled, the man ran from the bank empty-handed.  He was last seen headed west.

The suspect is described as an African-American male wearing a red long-sleeved shirt, black ball cap, and black pants.

For one former bank employee the robbery hit a little too close to home.

“A friend of mine from Reform called and wanted to know was I okay. You know what’s going on? I said, nothing I know of…looked out I the drive, and everything was surrounded in blue lights.”

Anyone with information on the robbery attempt or suspect is asked to call the Pickens County Sheriff’s Department at (205) 367-2000…
