BATON ROUGE - Deputies responded to a robbery Wednesday at a bank located on Industriplex Boulevard.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. at a Whitney Bank.

Reports say a man reportedly walked into the bank with a handgun, jumped over the teller counter and demanded money.

The suspect was described as wearing a blue, long-sleve, button-up shirt with blue jeans, black shoes, a blue bandanna and a black and gold Mardi Gras mask.

He also reportedly instructed other employees to move to a corner in the bank.

The robber then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

No patrons were in the bank at the time and there were no injuries.

EBRSO units setup a perimeter around the area and dispatched a K-9 unit to track the suspect.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 389-5000.
