The Chapelton Police have launched a manhunt for a man who attempted to rob a woman of $1 million in cash this morning. 

The police say about 10:15 a.m., a female employee of the Century Wholesale in Chapelton was about to enter the nearby National Commercial Bank with the cash lodgement when a man held on to the bag in which she was carrying the money.

The police say a tussle ensued and the bag broke.

That's when a security guard at the bank intervened.

The police say the robber managed to grab $100,000 in cash, before escaping.

The Chapelton Police are appealing to persons transacting business involving large sums of cash to seek their help.
