ROCHESTER - Police are on the lookout this afternoon for a man who robbed a Rochester bank earlier today.

The robbery occurred a little before 10 a.m. at the TD Bank North located at 1 Old Dover Road in Merchants Plaza.

Initial reports indicated one male entered the bank and upon being waited upon by the teller passed a note demanding money. While a weapon was referenced in the note, no weapon was shown.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s to early 30s with a medium build. He was about 5'9"-6'01" tall, with brown eyes and wearing a plaid flannel shirt, black knit winter hat, blue jeans and grey hiking style boots.

The male entered and left through the front door of the bank and was last seen on foot in the parking lot.

A bloodhound from Strafford County Sheriff's Department was called and conducted a short track which ended without locating the suspect.

There were no injuries during the incident.
