Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking for a man who attempted to rob a bank in northwest Oklahoma City at gunpoint Friday afternoon.

According to the FBI, just before 1:30 p.m., a man walked into the First Commercial Bank, located at 2523 N. Classen, and approached the teller counter. He then pointed a gun at a teller, and said something the tellers couldn't understand.

Without saying anything further and obtaining any money, the suspect turned around and walked out of the bank.

No one was injured during the attempted robbery.

The FBI released the following description of the suspect:

Asian male, 5'6" – 5'7", 120 lbs., dark spiked hair, wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with black trim, blue jeans, black tennis shoes with red laces, sunglasses, carrying a small black revolver.

Anyone with information should contact the FBI at (405)-290-7770. You may remain anonymous.

The Oklahoma Banker's Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and/or conviction of anyone attempting to rob a member bank.

Earlier on Friday, two men, 27-year-old Michael Deon Lewis and 19-year-old Jerry Carlton Lewis, were arrested after being accused of robbing a MidFirst Bank in Oklahoma City. Four schools in the area were placed on lockdown due to this robbery.
