The Wells Fargo on Newberry Road was robbed Friday afternoon.

The Wells Fargo Bank near the Oaks Mall was robbed Friday afternoon when a man approached a teller with a note demanding money.

According to an email from Gainesville Police Department spokesman Ben Tobias, GPD received multiple calls from the bank around 2:24 p.m.

The suspect, a white male in his 40s wearing a blue shirt and pants, showed the teller a handwritten note demanding money. Though the suspect implied he had a handgun, no one saw a weapon during the incident.

The suspect left after being given an unknown amount of cash. GPD officers are searching for the suspect, along with police dogs and a helicopter.
