1:20 p.m. Tuesday

Dallas Police early Tuesday afternoon released to Dallas-Hiram Patch details of a bank robbery that occurred at Georgia Heritage Bank.

According to Detective Allen Herd, the incident occurred about 9:45 a.m. when a man walked in and presented a note demanding cash. The perpetrator, who was not armed, was in and out in less than a minute after receiving an unspecified amount of cash, Herd said.

Authorities have not determined if the perpetrator used a vehicle as part of the incident. So far, Herd said, all authorities have been able to determine from bank security footage is that the man approached the bank from the woods behind it and then went back into the woods upon leaving.

The perpetrator is described as a black man about 30 years of age who wore a hoodie, ball cap, gray sweatshirt and blue jeans. Authorities in their search recovered the man’s hoodie, Herd said.

Dallas Police as of early Tuesday afternoon had not released any photos or security footage from the incident. Dallas-Hiram Patch will publish any such images once they are provided by authorities.

Anyone with information that may be able to aid investigators is asked to call Detective Allen Herd with the Dallas Police Department at 770-443-8100.

Original report

Authorities are investigating a Tuesday morning robbery at Georgia Heritage Bank in Dallas.

According to WSB TV, a man entered the bank about 10 a.m., but initial reports did not indicate whether the man was armed.

This isn’t the first time authorities have been called to the bank in recent weeks. Last month, Dallas Police responded to a call at the bank after a man tried to cash a forged check. Officers chased the man into the city of Dallas; the chase led to officials with Paulding County Schools to postpone afternoon dismissal at three area schools until authorities were able to resolve the situation.
