TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson Police need help identifying a person of interest in a bank robbery that happened in January.
Sgt. Chris Widmer with TPD tells KGUN9 that the robbery took place at the Pyramid Federal Credit Union, 5801 E. Broadway Blvd. January 15, but a person who matched the suspect walked into the credit union the day before without conducting any business.
On the day of the robbery, a man entered the bank with a handgun, jumped over the main counter and instructed the tellers to give them money from their drawers.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled from the bank.
He was seen headed in a westbound direction near the intersection of North Chantilly and East 10th Street.
He is described as a white man, between 20 and 25 years old, 6'0'' to 6'2'' and weighing about 170 to 190 pounds.
His build was described as thin. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded zip-up sweatshirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.
Police do not know yet if the person of interest pictured is the same man who robbed the bank, but his build and clothing are similar to the suspect.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
