UNCUT: Police give 3TV details on robbery

PHOENIX - Police are looking for a suspect in a robbery that took place at a Phoenix Wells Fargo bank branch.

Police tell 3TV the suspect, who was armed with a semi-automatic handgun, allegedly demanded money from a bank clerk.

The robbery suspect was heavily disguised, according to police. He had some sort of brown make-up on and either had on some sort of stuck-on or fake beard or possibly even drawn on with a black magic marker. The suspect also had on fake glasses and nose, was wearing a business suit with a tie and a big 1970s-type wig.

Police are continuing with their investigating by reviewing surveillance footage from the bank. They have not ruled out the possibility that this robbery could be linked to others involving a suspect who was also disguised.
