This time it was the N-B-C Branch on Williamson Road at the corner of Maitland Avenue. But the description of the bank robber in this case was much different from the man who held up the F-N-B on Hershberger two days ago. Around 3:15 yesterday afternoon, a white man entered the N-B-C bank, demanded money and fled on foot. Witnesses said he was about 5-8 to 6-feet tall, weighing 170 to 180 pounds in his mid-20's.
