Prince William County police are searching for a man who tried  to rob a BB&T branch in Lake Ridge on Wednesday.

The man walked in to the bank at 12435 Dillingham Square just before 5 p.m., approached the counter and passed a note to the teller demanding money and implying he was armed.

The man fled the bank, possibly on foot, without taking any money. No injuries were reported, and no weapon was seen, Prince William County police 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok said.

A police K-9 and helicopter assistance from Fairfax County police searched the area for the suspect who was not located. The same man was possibly in the bank earlier in the day and nothing of note occurred during that encounter, Perok said.
