Officers were called to River City Bank, 4001 Foothills Blvd., at 11:52 a.m. regarding a robbery in which a man approached a bank employee and gave her a note demanding money, according to a Roseville Police Department news release. The robber implied that he had a gun, but police said no weapons were seen.

The bank employee gave the robber an undisclosed amount of cash, then left. No injuries were reported.

The man (pictured) was described as African American, 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall and heavyset. He wore a red cap under a black hooded sweatshirt, a black letterman's-style jacket with white trim, dark-colored pants, and black and white athletic shoes.

The man was seen getting into a pickup driven by another man. The pickup was described as a white, very clean newer model, similar to a Chevy or Dodge.
