Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who robbed a bank Wednesday morning on the city's west side.

At about 11:30 a.m., police were dispatched to the Chase Bank at 2121 W. Grant Road for a report of a robbery, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

The robber, who was captured on a surveillance camera, had left the bank before police arrived, Hawke said.

No one was hurt during the robbery.

Detectives said the robber approached the teller counter and gave a teller a note, which threatened harm and demanded money. After he received the money, the man left the bank, Hawke said.

The man was described as African American, and he was about 30 to 40 years old. He was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed about 190 pounds. He also had a mustache.

He was last seen wearing dark athletic shorts with a red accent, a gray T-shirt, a dark blue pullover windbreaker with a hood, and white tennis shoes.

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