A manager at the PNC Bank in Zebulon held the bank’s door shut when a suspect with a gun tried to enter Thursday.
Zebulon police said they responded to a bank robbery in progress about 9:15 a.m. at the PNC Bank on Arendell Avenue.
According to police, the suspect approached the rear door of the bank wearing a mask, gloves, and hoodie. The bank manager reportedly saw the suspect coming towards the door and physically held the door shut.
The suspect revealed a small, black, semiautomatic handgun, which he used to bang on the door, police said. The manager continued to hold the door shut despite the suspect displaying a weapon and trying to pry the door open.
There was one customer inside the bank. He didn’t want to give his name, but he described the situation as “surreal.”

You know how cigarettes will kill you after years and years of smoking? Technology is attempting to accelerate that process.
On Saturday afternoon at around 3pm, the 20-year-old was smoking one of the electronic smokes in an e-cigarette shop in the town centre when the accident happened.
Police reported on Thursday that they believe he was there to buy an new battery and an evaporator head for his own e-cigarette.
He then tried the two new parts in his device in the shop. But as soon as he inhaled on the device, it exploded, burning and wounding his face and knocking several teeth out of his mouth.
Good thing he wasn’t on a hoverboard while smoking it.
