A stick up at a bank in Franklin County Monday morning.

Police say a man walked into the TD Bank in Swanton and told a teller, "this is a robbery, give me your money."  He then jumped the counter and got two tellers to open their drawers.  The suspect wore a hooded sweatshirt backward, with eye holes cut out. He took off on foot. Police used a K-9 and a witness to track him to a home, but he wasn't inside.

"There was a witness that put him running by the house. That was determined not to be the case. Other witnesses put him running continuously by the house, so therefore he still managed to elude on foot into a parking lot," said Swanton Police Chief Leonard Stell.

Police say the suspect is between 5'2" and 5'6" with a slight build. He has short brown hair and may be balding.
