Man attempts to rob Hattiesburg bank

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg police are looking for a suspect who may have tried to rob a Hattiesburg bank Tuesday afternoon.

Employees of the Bancorp South branch on Hardy Street said a white male, in his 20s with blonde hair and wearing a ski mask tried to enter the bank after 4 p.m. around the time employees lock the doors and normally buzz customers in.

Witnesses said the man had a mask on top of his head, and when he got to the door, he pulled it over his face. When he couldn't get in, he took off the mask and fled west on foot.
