MINNETONKA, Minn. (WCCO) — A TCF Bank in Minnetonka was robbed Friday morning as Girl Scouts were selling cookies inside.

Authorities say the robbery happened at 11:30 a.m. at the Ridgedale location on the 1800 block of Plymouth Road.

According to the FBI, the robber approached and told the female teller to give him all of her 50s and 100s. The teller then walked away from the counter without giving any money to the robber. The robber then left the bank.

FBI described the robber as a white male in his late 20s, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 240 pounds. The man was wearing a gray hoodie with a Nike logo on it, as well as a red baseball cap.

They said they don’t believe the perpetrator ever displayed a firearm during the robbery.

One of the witnesses was a woman who was there with her two children, who were there to sell Girl Scout cookies at the bank.

They said they are not deterred and would keep selling their cookies at the bank until 2 p.m.
