ATTEMPTED BANK ROBBERY: The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attempted bank robbery that occurred at the SunTrust Bank at 3070 Leonardtown Road in Waldorf. On Feb. 13 at 11:37 a.m., the suspect entered the bank, approached a teller and passed a note which implied he had a weapon and wanted money. Before the teller could do anything, the man left. Surveillance photos show the suspect entered the bank with an adolescent boy, possibly 10 to 13 years old. The youth walked up to the teller’s window with the suspect, but suddenly turned around and went back to the front doors where he waited. Both subjects left the bank together. The suspect is described as possibly being in his 30’s to 40’s, 5’10” to 6’0”, wearing a bright-colored jacket, a knit hat and dark glasses. The youth was wearing a bluish/gray coat, a gray and black knit hat, and red shoes. Anyone with information about the identity of either subject is asked to call Det. C. Gregory at (301) 609-6507.
