PHOENIX -- The FBI is searching for the man who robbed a Phoenix credit union in broad daylight Wednesday.

According to investigators, the man brandished a handgun as he walked into the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union northeast of the intersection of 48th Street and Ray Road.

The man demanded money from the credit-union employees and fled the scene once he got it.

FBI investigators said a second suspect helped the armed man get away.

The suspect who went into the credit union is described as a man of unknown race between 20 and 35 years old. He's between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark gloves and blue jeans. He also had a dark mask covering his face.

The weapon he had was a black semi-automatic handgun.

Investigators did not have a description of the second suspect.
