Police believe he followed her from one bank to the next.

Police say a woman cleaning a bank in Roswell was robbed by an armed man moments after she left the bank.

Rhonda Lipsey was leaving the SunTrust Bank on Holcomb Bridge Road late at night in early June when she said she could feel someone walking up behind her as she was putting things away in her car trunk, according to the incident report obtained by Channel 2 Action News.

She dialed 911 on her cell phone, placing it in a cleaning bucket and hiding it in the trunk. Then, Lipsey said a man holding a butterfly knife demanded she hand over her purse, and once she did, he ran. She told police he looked familiar.

"I was thinking this guy was gonna take my car, take my purse, take me, take my keys to the bank,” Lipsey told Channel 2.

Roswell police are working to obtain video surveillance to help identify the man.

Lipsey cleans more than one bank in the area, and police spokeswoman Lisa Holland told Channel 2 they believe the robber followed her from a Norcross bank.

Roswell police ask that anyone with information on this case contact them 770-640-4100.
