Police in Fayetteville are hoping someone will recognize an armed, masked man who robbed a Fayetteville bank in broad daylight on Monday afternoon.

Around 12:30 p.m., officers with the Fayetteville Police Department responded to the First Citizens Bank on Broadfoot Avenue.

Witnesses describe the suspect as a black male with a medium build who stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was wearing a white plastic mask, a gray hooded sweatshirt and gray sweatpants at the time of the robbery.
