OKLAHOMA CITY - A Bank of America branch on N. Robinson Avenue in Oklahoma City was robbed Wednesday afternoon.

The bank robber transported the money in a black satchel. He used a note typed on a typewriter that threatened he placed a bomb in the bank and he would set it off if money was not provided and if police were called for a set period of time.

Oklahoma City police and the FBI are investigating the incident. No suspicious device or package was found in the building.

The robber is described as a white male, between 5'8" to 5'9", heavy set around 250-300 lbs., in his late 60's, with a large gray beard and shoulder length gray hair. He was wearing a red ball cap, light blue t-shirt, blue jeans and thick prescription eyeglasses.

The suspect was last seen walking between two high rise buildings directly south of the bank, which is located 211 N. Robinson Avenue.

No one was injured during the incident. A reward of up to $2000 is being offered by the Oklahoma Bankers Association for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

If anyone has any information, please contact the FBI at (405) 290-7770.
