A man entered the bank and displayed a handgun to the teller and demanded money. The teller gave the robber cash and then retreated with the bank manager to a back room. Due to the fact that it could not be determined if the robber had left the bank, members of the Fairfax County Police Tactical Team were the first to enter the bank. The robber had fled prior to police arrival. Other than the two employees, there was no one else in the bank and there were no injuries.

The suspect was described as a black male, 6 feet 2 inches tall with a large build. He was wearing gray, white long sleeve turtleneck shirt, a black ski mask and sunglasses.
