Montgomery County police said are looking for a man they said tried to rob a BB&T Bank in Rockville on Tuesday.

Police said a man dressed in a green rain coat and sunglasses slid a note to the teller implying that he was armed and demanding money.

But police said the man ran away with out any cash when he saw the teller push the bank’s alarm button.

Police initially reported that incident occurred at 1:26 p.m. Tuesday at 1470 Rockville Pike. A news release issued Thursday said the bank robbery happened 3:16 p.m. the same day at the same branch.

Montgomery County police spokeswoman Janelle Smith said that there was only one robbery at the BB&T bank on Tuesday, but did not provide an explanation for the time discrepancy.

Police released photos from surveillance video on Thursday, with hopes someone might recognize the person in the images.

Police described the robber as a black male, between 5-feet, 9-inches and 5-feet, 10-inches tall with a slim build. Police said he was wearing a knit cap and white work gloves with red tips.
