CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called to the NoDa neighborhood Monday morning after an armed robbery at an ATM.

Police say the incident took place around 10 a.m. at the Fifth Third Bank ATM at 3123 North Davidson Street.

Officials say two black men, who were both armed, robbed a man and then fled the scene on foot.

One of the suspects had on a red hat, and both were in black and green, police said.
