PHOENIX — A man wearing a motorcycle helmet, his face obscured by the visor, robbed a Glendale bank earlier this week.

Glendale Police said the man, wearing a black motorcycle jacket, black jeans, black shoes and gloves, walked into the MidFirst Bank at 6508 W. Bell Road on Monday morning carrying a handgun. He approached a teller and demanded money, threatening to kill the teller and pointed the gun at other employees.

After a bag was filled with cash, the suspect left, driving away on a motorcycle.

The suspect is described as 6-foot to 6-foot-2 and about 170 pounds.

Anyone with information can call Glendale Police at (623) 930-3000 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
