FBI searches for Anchorage bank robber

By KTVA CBS 11 News 6:29 PM June 5, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

Law enforcement officers are on the hunt for a man who stole an undisclosed amount of money from a South Anchorage credit union and fled on a bicycle  Thursday morning.

According to a statement from the FBI, the suspect entered the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union on Hartzell Road around 11:25 a.m. and presented a teller with a note demanding money.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, between 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 4 inches tall with a thin build, black hair and a black mustache, according to the FBI. Surveillance video captured at the scene shows the suspect wearing a black hooded pullover with pockets, black gloves, black sunglasses, a black-billed hat, black pants and black or gray tennis shoes. He was also carrying a small black backpack, and the FBI said he rode towards Abbott Road on a bicycle after leaving the bank.

The bureau said anyone with information on the case is asked to call the FBI at 907-276-4441 or the Anchorage Police Department at 907-786-8500.
