Tucson police are searching for a man linked to a downtown bank robbery Monday afternoon.

At about 1:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to National Bank of Arizona at 136 N. Stone Ave. and found out that the man had already left.

No one was injured during the incident, said Officer Brandon Tatum, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

Robbery detectives said that the man entered the bank and presented a note to the teller demanding money, Tatum said. The man did not display a weapon.

He left the bank after receiving an undisclosed amount of money. He was last seen running south from the bank, Tatum said.

A surveillance camera captured video of the man who was described as white. He had a full beard and dirty blonde hair, said Tatum.

He was in his late 20s to early 30s, and about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He weighed about 180 pounds, and was last seen wearing a red long-sleeved shirt with white horizontal stripes. The man also wore a multi-colored baseball cap.

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