Officers responded at 3:56 p.m. to a report of a robbery at the bank in the 1600 block of Response Road. They were told that a man approached a teller, demanded money and indicated that he had a gun, although no firearm was seen, according to a Police Department news release.
After receiving the cash, the man left the bank and fled the area on a bicycle.
Sacramento Police Neighborhood Crimes detectives and the FBI are investigating the robbery.
The suspect (pictured) is described as in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He also had a red goatee at the time of the robbery.
The man reportedly had tattoos on his arms and a tattoo with black ink on the back of his neck. During the robbery, he was wearing a black jacket, baggie black pants and a grey beanie with "LB" on the front. He also wore a backpack that may have had a web-type design on it.
