Hingham police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a Hingham bank on Friday afternoon.

According to police, the man entered the Rockland Trust Bank on William B. Terry Drive on Friday at 4 p.m. Police said he started to unfold a note so that the teller could see it, but he did not hand the note to the teller.

Police said that he told the teller than he had a gun, and that he was robbing her. He threatened to kill her but did not display a weapon.

The teller handed him cash and he grabbed it and walked out of the bank, police said. Once outside, the suspect began to run. He was last seen running toward the side of the buildings beside Lincoln Street.

Police said the suspect appears to be a white male in his 30s with some facial hair. He has a thin build, was wearing a “scully type” hat with sunglasses rested on top, and had a dark, zippered up hooded jacket with a white shirt partially visible underneath. He also had on dark sweatpants, and white shoes or sneakers.

Police said that the man was not wearing gloves, and didn’t make any attempt to conceal his face.

According to police, the bank entrance and exit the suspect went in and out of are visible to commuters waiting in traffic on Lincoln Street (or Route 3A) at the intersection of Shipyard Drive.

Anyone with information about the robbery or who recognize the suspect should contact Det. Gerald McInnis or Det. Philip Emmott at 781-749-1212. People can also leave an anonymous tip on the Drop-A- Dime link on Hingham Police Department’s website.
