While the robber didn't display a weapon, he reportedly told the male teller, "Give me all your money or I'll blow your head off."

The shocked teller said "Huh?" The robber then pointed to a notepad that he was carrying. Written on the pad was: "Give me all your money and no dye pack."

The teller, still confused, reached for the notepad, but the robber hugged the pad close to himself, backed away and left through the south exit doors, police said.
