At 12:40 p.m., the suspect entered the bank and demanded cash from a teller, said Tahnee Lightfoot, a spokeswoman with the Glendale Police Department.
The suspect indicated that he had a weapon, but no one saw it, Lightfoot said.
He was last seen on foot heading eastbound on Doran Avenue toward Adams Street.
The suspect is believed to be a 40-year-old black man who’s bald, is 5 feet 8 and weighs 160 pounds, according to police.
He was also wearing circular glasses, a burgundy polo-style shirt and black pants.
The FBI is also investigating, Lightfoot said.
