The Memorial Credit Union on Longview Road was robbed today, police said.

Investigators with the Chattanooga Police Department Property Crimes Division are on the scene, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

Witnesses said a light-skinned black male entered the credit union, located at 6800 Longview Road, jumped the counter and took an undisclosed amount of money.

He then maced two tellers and fled in an unknown direction, Weary said.

None of the employees were seriously injured in the robbery.

The suspect was described as wearing a light-grey fleece jacket and a fleece hat with a bill. He was between 5 foot 9 and 5 foot 10 feet tall and about 160 pounds. The suspect was armed with a gun and a can of mace.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Chattanooga police.
