Robbery in progress?

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.
