Police are searching for a man they say robbed a Tulsa bank Wednesday afternoon.

Police said a man walked into the Arvest Bank in the 4300 block of South Garnett Road wearing a hoodie. They said when bank employees asked him to take the hoodie off, the man told them he had a gun and appeared to reach for it.

Officers said employees handed the suspect money and left. It's not clear at this time if the robber ran away or had a getaway car.

Police said there were several employees and a handful of customers in the bank at the time of the robbery, but no one was hurt.

"Banks do everything right. They have great video, all of them have policies and procedures in place and the stuff that they do helps us solve our crimes," Sergeant Brandon Watkins said.

Police released images from surveillance video of the robber. If you recognize the man, your asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
