Police are trying to identify a man caught on surveillance camera during the robbery of a midtown bank Wednesday afternoon.

At about 2:20 p.m. the man approached a counter at the US Bank located inside the Safeway grocery store at 1940 E. Broadway near North Campbell Avenue and handed the teller a note.

“The note was threatening in nature and demanded that the male be given money,” Sgt. Maria Hawke, spokeswoman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.

The robber was given an undisclosed amount of money, left the grocery store through the main entrance and was last seen running in a southeast direction.

He was described as black, in his mid-20s, standing 5-feet-11-inches tall and weighing about 185 pounds. He had a goatee and was wearing a dark-color University of Arizona Wildcats T-shirt, dark-color pants, a dark-color baseball-style hat and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity or whereabouts should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
