A knife-wielding man wearing a mask splattered with fake blood robbed a Wells Fargo Bank Saturday morning in Old Town Alexandria, police said.

The man walked in to the bank at 330 N. Washington Street at about 9:20 a.m. wearing a red and white hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, gloves and the mask, which had blood on the cheek and eye area.

He showed a knife and demanded money, according to Alexandria police. The teller gave him cash and he left.

Police ask anyone who knows anything about the case or recognizes the suspect in the surveillance photos to call detective Sean Casey at 703-746-6853.
