A man who demanded money at a Chase bank branch left empty-handed Friday afternoon, according to Fort Wayne Police.The man, wearing a black ski mask, entered the bank at 2810 Coldwater Road at around 3:19 p.m. and presented a teller with a note, police spokeswoman Raquel Foster said a news release. When he couldn't get any money, he fled on foot. He reportedly fled on foot northbound from the bank.

Bank customers were present at the time but no weapon was shown and no injuries were reported.

A canine unit tracked the man north from the bank, through a nearby mobile home park, but the trail ended at the north end of the park, according to Foster.

Crime Scene Technicians were processing the scene for potential evidence, and detectives were continuing to interview witnesses. Detectives released surveillance images of the man in the hopes that someone will recognize him.

This incident remains under investigation by the Northeast Indiana Bank Robbery Task Force. This task force is composed of investigators with the Fort Wayne Police Department, Allen County Sheriff Department, Indiana State Police, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
