Reporter Adam Sallet, of KIMT-TV Channel 3 News, the CBS affiliate covering southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa, was doing a live report during today's news broadcast at noon regarding a bank robbery that occurred in northwest Rochester on Monday morning. As he was giving his report, an employee of the bank came rushing out hurriedly and exclaimed to Sallet that the alleged suspect had just passed by. The video comes from KIMT News 3 via Facebook.

As the video shows, Sallet handled himself well, despite all the excitement. The robbery occurred at the Sterling State Bank location off 55th Street Northwest and Bandel Road Monday morning around 11:20 a.m.
