The robber is described as a white male in his late 20s, five-foot-10 with a slim build and wearing blue jeans, grey runners and gloves.
The bank remained shut down until mid- to late-afternoon, with a sign at the entrance directing patrons to the Johnston Road branch. .
Wednesday morning, a security guard was stationed inside.
