Police were called to the Wachovia bank branch at 16810 Georgia Avenue at 10:21 a.m. on Saturday.

At the scene, police learned the man entered the bank and immediately approached the teller. After getting the cash, the robber fled the bank on foot.

The teller was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, a police spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Officials described the suspect as a black man between 25 and 35 years old, 6'2" to 6'4" and 180 to 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black sunglasses.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call 240-773-5100. Those seeking a reward of up to $1,000 can call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
