Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who robbed a Wells Fargo bank Thursday.

Shortly after 2 p.m., a man handed a teller a note demanding money and threatening harm at the Wells Fargo inside Bashas' grocery store at 3275 N. Swan Road, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

He ran from the store after receiving an undisclosed amount of money, Widmer said. He said no one was injured during the robbery.

The man was last seen running west on East Camp Lowell Drive.

The robber, who was captured on a surveillance camera, was described as Hispanic and in his mid-20s. He was about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed about 170 pounds.

The man had long sideburns. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, dark jeans and a black-and-red baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
