Bowling Green Police are continuing to investigate an attempted bank robbery on East Wooster Street Thursday.
The incident was reported at approximately 10:43 a.m. at the Huntington Bank location at 1480 E. Wooster St.
The robbery was reportedly attempted by a thin black male, approximately 6 foot 5 inches with an athletic build, in his late 30s to early 40s, wearing a tan suit, white-collared shirt, light-colored necktie, an "Obama 2010" hat, with gold teeth, and carrying a black bag or briefcase. The subject brandished a black handgun during the attempt.
The subject entered a light-blue sedan and left the area eastbound on Wooster Street, according to police.
Lt. Brad Biller of the BGPD said this morning he could not verify if the suspect actually did not take anything in the incident, but indicated they are still classifying the matter as an attempted

A man identified as the boyfriend of one of the tellers working at the bank at the time said she had texted him after the incident, indicating "Ihad a gun pointed at my head."
The Bowling Green Police Division was assisted at the scene by agents of the Ohio Attorney General's Office, Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"There are a number of video systems in that area, and we're just trying to get something usable that's going to be identifiable as to him and his vehicle," said Biller.
Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to contact the Bowling Green Police Division at 419-352-1131, or Wood County CrimeStoppers at 1-800-54-CRIME.
