GERMANTOWN, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Germantown police are searching for a man who held a woman at gun point outside a bank Wednesday.

Officers responded to First Tennessee Bank on Winchester Road just before 5:30 p.m. They say the woman came to put money in the drop box from a Memphis business.

A man with a T-shirt tied around his face approached her with a handgun. But he did not get away with any money.

"She was dropping it into the drop box, he startled her and she dropped it. He tried to get back in the box to get it out, but he was not able to retrieve it," said Germantown police captain Angie Lewis.

The man then jumped into a blue Volkswagen Passat. It took off eastbound on Winchester.

If you have any information call Germantown Police at (901) 754-7222.
