The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are looking for a man who robbed a Bank of the West branch in Albuquerque on Friday.

Witnesses say the man entered the bank on San Mateo Blvd. at approximately 9:15 a.m. and displayed a semi-automatic handgun. The man demanded money from a teller, who handed over an undisclosed amount of money to the robber. The suspect then left the bank and got into a vehicle driven by another person waiting in an alley behind the bank.

The suspect is described as a black male with green eyes and a slender build. He may have a tattoo under his left eye.

The suspect wore a blue bandana over his face, a black zippered hoodie, white latex gloves, and dark pants, possibly faded jeans.

The vehicle, which is described as a gray Nissan Altima with a turquoise New Mexico license plate, was last seen heading down the alley toward an Albertson's supermarket.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the FBI at 505-889-1300.

The FBI may pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
