        The man grabbed the bank security guard's semiautomatic pistol, but there were no injuries or shots fired, according to the FBI.

        The man walked into the branch at 10:55 a.m. with a gray T-shirt wrapped around his head and demanded money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen headed south on foot.

        The FBI describes him as white, in his 30s, about 5-foot-10 and thin with blue eyes and short dirty blond hair. He wore blue jeans and a baseball cap.

        A Boone County police cruiser carrying a canine unit crashed while responding to the robbery. The dog and driver were not injured.

        It was the 12th bank robbery in a nine-county area of Northern Kentucky, compared to seven robberies for all of last year, according to the FBI.
