The Alexandria Police Department is investigating the robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank located in the 300 block of N. Washington Street. Around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 10, a man entered the bank and passed a teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled on foot. No one in the bank was injured.
