The suspect pointed a gun at the victim and demanded money causing the victim to drop his wallet, according to Hoffman. The victim fled eastbound across DuPont Highway and the suspect fired at least three shots at him. The victim was not struck, but one round did strike a parked vehicle in the area.

The victim observed the suspect enter a vehicle behind the bank and flee southbound with an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim.
