Persley, Albany Police Department, request the public’s help in identifying a male and female who threatened employees and customers during a bank robbery on November 6, 2017.

At about 1:30 p.m. a black male and black female entered the Renasant Bank at 721 North Westover Boulevard in Albany. The male was armed with a shotgun and threatened about a dozen customers and employees and ordered them to the floor while the female went behind the counter and collected an undisclosed amount of cash.
