CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) — A man robbed a branch of the State Employees’ Credit Union in Chapel Hill Thursday morning, then made his getaway on a public bus, town officials said.
The man entered the credit union on Elliott Road at about 8:58 a.m., demanded and got money without displaying a weapon, then walked out of the bank, according to a town news release.
He walked toward Chapel Hill Fire Station 3, and later got on a bus headed toward downtown Chapel Hill, according to the release.
Officials describe the robber as a black man between 50 and 60 years old, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds.
