Chesapeake police are asking for help from the public in apprehending a man who robbed a bank Tuesday morning in the Chesapeake Square area.

Shortly after 10 a.m., a man entered the ABNB Federal Credit Union branch located at 4109 Chesapeake Square Blvd. and demanded money while implying that he had a weapon, according to Detective Gus Mojica, a spokesman for the Chesapeake Police Department.

After obtaining money, the man walked out of the bank and got into a silver, newer-model vehicle that was already occupied by another person, Mojica stated in a press release Tuesday evening.
