A Brinks messenger was robbed while trying to service the ATM PNC Bank at 16616 Harvard Avenue.

At about 10:05 a.m., the Brinks messenger approached the door to the bank and was attacked by an armed male dressed in a METRO security uniform.

The suspect pinned the messenger against the exterior bank door and put a pistol to the messenger's head and demanded money.

With the cash bag in hand, the suspect ran across Harvard Avenue behind Burger King and Rent-A-Center to Eldamere Avenue. He entered the driver's side of a white Ford Fusion and drove west toward Lee Road.

The suspect was described as a black male, about 6'0" with a thin build and wearing a ski mask and Metro security clothing.
