A person robbed a bank in Harrison, assaulted a customer and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, the Cumberland Country Sheriff’s Office said.

The robbery occurred at 3:55 p.m. at Northeast Bank at 46 Main St.

The suspect did not display a weapon, police said, and the customer who was assaulted was not injured.

After the robbery, the suspect drove away. A Maine state trooper who was in town at the time arrived at the bank within minutes of the call first being broadcast by a police dispatcher. A Cumberland Country Sheriff’s deputy who patrols Harrison arrived shortly afterward and secured the bank.

Customers gave police a description of the suspect and the vehicle license plate. The sheriff’s office and Maine State Police continue to investigate the robbery.

This story was corrected at 7:56 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, to reflect that police are still seeking a suspect.
