Howard County police need help identifying a suspect in the robbery of Capital One Bank in the 600 block of Marshalee Drive in Elkridge.

Friday afternoon at 1:45 pm, the suspect walked into the bank demanding money and saying he had a weapon.

After receiving the money the suspect fled.

There were no injuries but the investigation is still ongoing.
