HYATTSVILLE, Md. — Authorities say a man carrying a box he claimed contained a bomb robbed a bank in Hyattsville.

The FBI says the man walked into the Capital One Bank on Annapolis Road about 5 p.m. Friday with a shoebox-sized container under his arm. Authorities say the man gave a clerk a note demanding money and that the box had a bomb.

The man left the bank after getting money, and left the box behind.

The Prince George’s County Fire/EMS bomb squad x-rayed the box and found it was empty.

Witnesses said the suspect had a mustache and was wearing hat, sunglasses, a long-sleeved gray shirt and blue jeans, WJZ reports.

The FBI said no one was hurt.

Anyone who knows anything about the robbery or saw anything around the area of the bank on Friday afternoon is asked to call the FBI Baltimore at 410-265-8080, or Prince George’s County Police Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
