The FBI and Norman Police are searching for a man who walked up to a bank branch in a grocery store and demanded cash.

Around 11:50 a.m. Monday, the man approached a teller at the Bank of Oklahoma branch inside the Homeland Grocery Store at 2600 W. Robinson Street in Norman. The man handed the teller a note that both demanded money and indicated he was armed.

The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of money, which the robber placed inside a folded newspaper. The man then walked out of the bank and was last seen riding a bicycle south from the Homeland store.

No one was hurt during the robbery.

The FBI believes this man is the same person who robbed the Communication Federal Credit Union at 300 12th Ave S.E. in Norman on February 1.

The bank robber is described as a black male, approximately 50 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 150 pounds. He has a thin build, and was wearing a dark-colored jacket, plaid shirt with a white collar, eyeglasses, and a baseball cap with a white design on the front.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery should contact the FBI at (405) 290-7770. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a $2,000 reward.
