DETROIT (WWJ) – Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a bank in Pontiac.
The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI have joined forces to find the suspect involved in the robbery, which took place around 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Bank of America on North Saginaw Street near Huron Street.
According to police, the man handed a teller a note demanding money, and then left with an estimated $4,000 in cash. A K9 tracking team responded to the area, but didn’t turn up any clues.
Police believe the man might be responsible for a robbery at Genisys Credit Union on Woodward Avenue in Pontiac last Wednesday.
The suspect is described as a light skin Hispanic or African American male, about 5’7″ to 5’9″ tall. At the time, he was wearing a green camouflage winter jacket with a white t-shirt underneath, a fur-lined winter hat and dark pants.
Anyone with information is requested to contact the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office at 248-858-4911 or the FBI at 313-965-2323.
