At about 4:17 p.m., the man passed a note to a bank teller demanding money but did not show a weapon. He left the bank on foot with an unknown amount of cash, Sgt. Ken Hammond of the Columbia Police Department said.

No one was injured, and no customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery.

Police are canvassing the area and interviewing the bank tellers. Police plan to view surveillance tapes soon, Hammond said.
