A man robbed the iAB Financial Bank in Grabill this morning, making off with an undisclosed amount of money and fleeing in a two-door car driven by another man, Allen County police said today.

Police said the man entered the bank at 13505 Main St. about 9 a.m., pointed a handgun at a teller and demanded money. He fled on foot eastbound, crossing the railroad tracks, and got into a teal or blue compact car, similar to a 1980s or 1990s Chevrolet Cavalier.

The robber is described as between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a slender build, police said.

They asked anyone with information to contact the Allen County Sheriff's Department at 260-449-3000 or the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force at 260-426-5331.
