Orlando police said the man, who was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap, entered a Bank of America location around 12:45 p.m. Monday and handed a note to a teller claiming he had a gun and demanding money, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday.
However, the teller refused to give him any money and called police.
The man then went across the street to a CVS store, displayed a gun and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police said they are attempting to identify the man from surveillance footage.
