TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police are looking for a black male who walked into a MidFirst Bank branch in the 2500 block of East 21st Monday morning and ordered a teller to give him all the money.

Police got the call shortly after 10 a.m.

The man, who police say implied he had a gun, was wearing a blue jacket, dark pants, a baseball hat and wearing a pair of sunglasses. He appeared to be in his 40's, was six foot tall and weighed about 200 pounds. He also had a mustache.

After grabbing money from the teller, Tulsa Police say the suspect ran out the door and fled into a nearby neighborhood.  They are not sure if he had a getaway vehicle nearby.

Police Sgt. Dave Walker says this is the 18th robbery of a financial institution in Tulsa for 2010.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
