Oklahoma City police and FBI agents are looking for a man who robbed IBC Bank, 2301 N Portland Ave., about 9:20 a.m. Thursday, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

The robber entered the bank with a weapon drawn and yelled, “Put your hands up.” He demanded money from three tellers. The tellers gave him an undisclosed amount of cash in a plastic grocery bag, the FBI reported.

The robber fled, dropping a portion of the money onto the floor. No one was injured in Thursday's robbery, the FBI reported.

The vehicle the robber used was a stolen, black, four-door Honda Accord. It was found abandoned about a block away from the bank. Authorities think the robber had an accomplice who picked him up there, the FBI reported.

The robber is described as a black man in his early 20s, about 6 feet 4 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black hoodie, designer jeans, dark gloves and was carrying a small black revolver.

The FBI said Thursday's robbery is similar to robberies committed in Bethany, Warr Acres and Moore.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at 290-7770. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for reward of up to $2,000 from the Oklahoma Bankers Association for information leading to the identification, arrest and/or conviction.
