On Feb. 18 at 1:08 p.m., a Chase bank manager alerted Strongsville police after a man reportedly walked into the branch – located at 14357 Pearl Rd. – wearing a ski mask and sunglasses.
With his left hand in his pocket, he asked to open a checking account, but started complaining that his legs hurt, according to the Strongsville police report.
He left the bank and jumped into a black Chevrolet truck. Chase staff was unable to catch his license plate, which was covered in salt and snow. Police were advised.

His mother quickly arrived home, searched the residence and didn’t find anyone.
A neighbor, who was outside, also reported he didn’t see anything suspicious, but mentioned he heard a loud bang.
