The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating a bank robbery reported at a U.S. Bank on Kingston Pike in Knoxville on Tuesday afternoon.
The robbery was reported at the U.S. Bank at 8845 Kingston Pike at about 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The FBI reported that a white man entered the bank and demanded money with a note.
“After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money from the bank, the robber fled in a white, four-door sedan,” the FBI said.
The robber is described as a white male with gray hair down to his collar, and he is estimated to be about 6’0” and weigh about 250 pounds. He could be between 45-55 years old, and he was wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt, dark-colored sweat pants, white sneakers, glasses, and a dark-colored knit cap, the FBI said.
The alleged robbery is being investigated by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, which is comprised of the FBI, Knoxville Police Department, and Knox County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit and the Blount County Sheriff’s Office, a press release said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Knoxville FBI Office at 865-544-0751 or the Knox County Sheriff’s Office at 865-215-2243.
All defendants are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
