Norway Savings Bank in Naples was robbed Friday by a man who claimed to have a weapon and demanded cash.

The man left by the front door after bank workers handed over money. They told police he did not show a weapon. The amount of cash taken wasn’t disclosed.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office was called to the branch on Roosevelt Trail about noon. The sheriff’s office said workers told deputies that after leaving the bank, the man jumped over a guardrail in the parking lot and ran down a steep, snow-covered embankment and got into a waiting car, described as a gray or silver older model compact. The car headed east on Roosevelt Trail toward Casco.

The robber is described as white man, about 6 feet tall with a medium build, approximately 40 to 50 years old, possibly with a beard. He had a red scarf wrapped around his face and was wearing black pants, a blue sweat shirt, a dark knit cap and winter gloves.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 893-2810 or the FBI at 774-9322.
