CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department is still actively searching for the suspect involved in an attempted bank robbery March 21 at Regions Bank, 128 N. 2nd St.

The suspect was seen fleeing towards College St. and is described as a black male with a dark complexion, approximately 40 years old, between 5’10” and 6’ in height, with short hair and an average build. He was wearing a blue sweatshirt or sweater, red baseball cap, and light blue baggy pants or jeans.

According to Officer Natalie Hall, the suspect approached a male teller with a note upon entering the bank which read “Give me all the money.” He did not have an exposed weapon, though he threatened the teller, saying, “Don’t make me hurt you.”

Before officers arrived, the male teller appeared to set off the alarm, causing the suspect to set off on foot. K-9 Officer, Gabe Johnson, tracked the suspect to Franklin St. and Commerce St., where the track was called off at 12:55 p.m.

The suspect did not escape with any money from the teller.

If anyone has any information in regards to this incident or can identify the suspect, please call Detective Tracy Woodruff at 931-648-0656 Ext. 5531. To remain anonymous, call the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS (8477).
