Tucson police is asking the public for help in identifying a man wanted in connection with a bank robbery Wednesday.

Shortly before 2:30 p.m. officers were dispatched to the US Bank inside the Safeway supermarket, 1940 E. Broadway, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

Police found out that a man who robbed the bank had already fled, Hawke said.

No one was injured during the robbery, she said.

Robbery detectives found out that a man approached the teller counter and presented a teller with a threatening note demanding money, said Hawke.

The man was given an undisclosed amount of cash, and he fled. He was last seen running in a southeast direction, said Hawke.

The man was captured on a surveillance camera, and was described as African American. He was in his mid-20s, 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighed about 185 pounds, Hawke said.

He had a medium-to-dark complexion, and a goatee-style beard, said Hawke.

The man was wearing a dark colored University of Arizona T-shirt, dark colored pants, dark colored baseball-style hat, and sunglasses, Hawke said.

Anyone having information regarding the man's identity or his whereabouts is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
