The FBI and Alamogordo Department of Public Safety are investigating a bank robbery that occurred at First National Bank, 414 10th Street, Alamogordo, on Tuesday night.

The suspect is described as a stocky white or Hispanic male, approximately 5’8” to 5’9” tall, with a cut on his nose and swollen eyes.

He wore a jean jacket with a gray hood, a black glove on one hand and a white glove on the other, and had a black bag that resembled a back pack.

The suspect was last seen driving south on White Sands Boulevard.
