The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are investigating the robbery of the Bank of Albuquerque, 4201 Wyoming Blvd. NE, on Friday.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about 5’7 tall, weighing approximately 160 pounds, in his mid- to late 30s, with a small build and dark brown eyes.

He had a tattoo on his left hand and small bump on his nose.

The suspect wore a gray and black beanie with a design on it, blue jeans and dark shoes.

Witnesses say the suspect entered the bank at about 12:05 p.m., told a teller he was armed, and demanded cash.

The suspect put an undisclosed amount of money in a cheetah-colored bag and left the bank. He was last seen on foot heading west on La Mirada Place NE.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense and the penalty increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.
