CHANDLER, Ariz. – A man dressed as a construction worker robbed a Chandler bank Tuesday morning and police are asking for the public’s help to identify him.

Chandler police Sgt. Joe Favazzo said the suspect was wearing a hard hat, reflective traffic vest, gloves and his face was covered by a black cloth when he entered the Chase Bank near Kyrene Road and Chandler Boulevard at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The suspect approached a teller and pounded on the counter, demanding money. The teller put an unknown amount of cash into the suspect’s blue bag then the robber left the bank.

A customer followed the suspect into the parking lot but lost sight of him a few minutes before police officers arrived.

The suspect is described as approximately 6 feet tall with a very thin build.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call 480-782-4130.
