Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who tried to rob a south-side Wells Fargo Monday.

Shortly before 3 p.m. a man walked into the bank at 802 W. Ajo Way, and approached the teller counter, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

He passed a teller a note that implied he would harm her if she failed to give him money, Hawke said.

The teller, which was behind a bullet-resistant barrier, "announced that a robbery was in progress and ducked down behind the counter," said Hawke.

The man left the bank, and witnesses said the man climbed into a 2006 to 2010 silver passenger car that left the area, Hawke said.

The man was described as white or Hispanic in his mid-20s to mid-30s. He was about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighed 185 pounds and had dark hair, said Hawke.

He was last seen wearing a dark long-sleeved T-shirt, tan pants and dark sunglasses.

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