The attempted robbery happened in the Citibank at 2221 I St. NW about 2:45 p.m. Thursday.
The man walked into the bank across from the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro station and gave a teller a note, police said.
“Got gun 7500 no dye packs,” the message said, according to authorities.
The bank employee then brought the note to her supervisor. But the man left while the teller was bringing it to the attention of her boss.
Police released a tweet with a suspect description:
Attempt Robbery 1450 hrs 2200 B/O I St, NW. LOF: B/M, 20-30 yoa, 6'0, wearing a yellow & green construction hat and neon jkt.
