HALLOWELL, Maine (AP) - Hallowell police are looking for a man they say appears to be in his 60s or even 70s who robbed a bank in town.

Police say the man, wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat and carrying a brief case, entered the Bank of Maine branch on Monday morning and at first said he wanted to open an account. He then handed a teller a note demanding money and saying he had a grenade.

Witnesses told police they did not see a weapon.

He was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot.

The suspect is described as about 6-feet tall and about 175 pounds. He was wearing a tan or brown coat, a blue shirt, tan or brown pants and brown shoes.
