Investigators are on the lookout for a man who robbed a bank in northwest Oklahoma City, Friday afternoon.

According to a release from the Oklahoma City branch of the FBI, a male suspect wearing a skull face mask entered the Bank of Oklahoma branch located at 2601 N. Meridian around 4 p.m. on Friday.

The suspect interrupted a transaction with a teller and a customer and demanded money. The teller complied and handed the suspect an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then fled the scene on foot.

At no point was a weapon drawn and no one was injured in the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 300 lbs, standing at 6'2" tall. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, an orange construction-type orange vest, an orange head covering, with a skull face mask and skeleton hand gloves.

Investigators believe the suspect may also be responsible for two previous metro area bank robberies earlier this year. This robbery is being investigated by the Oklahoma City Police Department and the FBI.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (405) 290-7770. Callers can remain anonymous. The Oklahoma Bankers Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for robbing a member bank.
