CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids police are looking for a man who drove off in a small dark colored station wagon following a robbery at a Cedar Rapids bank Tuesday morning.

The robbery happened just before 11:00 o’clock Tuesday morning at the Well Fargo Bank branch, 3406 F Avenue N.W. Investigators say a white man described at six foot tall weighing 200 to 220 pounds entered the bank. He did not show a weapon to employees but made the threat with a hand in a pocket and demanded money.

Police say the bank robber was wearing a dark green jacket with a hood pulled around his face. Cedar Rapids Police spokesperson Sgt. Cristy Hamblin said witnesses didn’t have an exact age. But they did have some evidence the robber was older.

“An older male with some kind of facial hair. They thought it looked like there was some gray in the facial hair,” Hamblin said.

The robber was last seen driving west on Sunnydale Street N.W. about a quarter of a block from the bank. No one was hurt in the robbery.
