ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal and local authorities are searching for a man suspected of robbing an Albuquerque bank at gunpoint.

The FBI and Albuquerque police say a man entered a branch of US Bank around 10:15 a.m. and pointed a pistol at employees.

FBI spokesman Fank Fisher says he ordered two tellers to put money in a bag and then left with an undisclosed sum.

He is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5-foot-6 with close-cropped hair and a medium build.

Witnesses told police he wore sunglasses, a black hoodie, blue sweats and covered the lower half of his face with a blue and white bandanna.

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