Arkansas Bank robbery suspect wears pillowcase over his head

Had socks on his hands

FORT SMITH, AR - The search is on in Arkansas for a suspect who robbed a bank wearing a pillowcase over his head.
Fort Smith police say the suspect also wore socks on his hands and carried an orange shopping sack.

"I was just sitting at the front desk, confirming appointments and just noticed police men were out in the parking lot and walkie talkies," said nearby worker Carrie Jones.

Investigators say the suspect came into the bank and demanded money. Police say he never flashed a weapon but forced employees to put cash inside his orange bag.
"Right now, we're not sure on race because he was covered from head to toe pretty much," said Fort Smith Police officer Cpl. Steve Dooly.

Police did not reveal how much money the bank robbery suspect took.
