Knoxville (WVLT) – The Knox County Sheriff's Department and the FBI need your help to find two men they say robbed the First Tennessee Bank near Turkey Creek.
According to the Knoxville Office of the FBI, two white men entered the bank on Parkside Drive around 5:30.
The first man is described by witnesses as being between 40-50-years-old, approximately 5'6" tall, with short dark hair and a few days' growth of beard. He was wearing a green knit cap with letters on the front, a dark jacket, black gloves, and thick tan-colored, square-framed, clear plastic glasses. He was noticed to appear calm and soft-spoken.
The second man, in his early twenties, was wearing mint green fleece mittens, a mint green fleece hooded sweatshirt, with a tan-colored knit cap. He was approximately 5'7" with a very thin build.
The FBI says the older man handed a blue bank bag to a teller, inside of which there was a note announcing the robbery and demanding money. No weapon was displayed.
The men left the bank with an undetermined amount of money.
They were last seen going on foot toward the Campbell Station side of the bank. Anyone having any information concerning this robbery should call the FBI at (865) 544-0751 or the Knox County Sheriff's Department at (865) 215-2243.
