Longview police say East Texas Professional Credit Union at 3801 Gilmer Road was robbed.
A clerk told police that a white male wearing jeans, a gray polo-style shirt, tennis shoes, a hunting mask and a plaid Hurley-brand baseball cap displayed a weapon and demanded money. The suspect fled the scene in a tan SUV before police arrived. Officers say the SUV was parked on the side of the bank on Crystal Street.
Employees at Primary Colors Preschool and Kiddie Kampus preschool say they went on lockdown after Wednesday's robbery since they are so close to the bank. They say extra security measures were taken as parents came to pick up their children.
Officers say no one was hurt during Wednesday's robbery. The East Texas Professional Credit Union will re-open for business on Thursday.
