PHOENIX - A suspect made out with an undisclosed amount of cash after robbing a bank on Christmas Eve.

The suspect, described as a white man in his 30s, entered the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union located near 7th Street and Missouri at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday and presented what police refer to as a "demand note" to the teller.

The teller complied and the man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police say the suspect was in and out of the bank in just a couple of minutes, which is the most common type of robbery. He reportedly never displayed a weapon but could have indicated in the demand note that he had one on him.

The suspect is described as having a medium build, standing about 5'10" tall with brown hair. Police also say he had about a day's worth of beard and was wearing a dark jacket.
