KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A man on a bicycle reportedly robbed a 5/3 Bank in Kettering, near the intersection of Wilmington and Patterson Friday afternoon.

There, he handed the bank teller a note that said he had a gun and demanded money — but never brandished a firearm, Kettering police say.

He left the bank on a bicycle and rode off into a nearby neighborhood. Police say he then ditched the bike and took off on foot.

Police say he got away with about $1,000 from the bank. There is no one in custody following the robbery as of Friday afternoon, according to police. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
