OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A bank robbery suspect threatened the life of a teller Monday before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money, the FBI said. No one was hurt.

The suspect, described as a white or Hispanic man, approached the teller counter at the First Fidelity Bank on Oklahoma City's southwest side and demanded money, authorities said.

The suspect threatened a teller's life if cash was not handed over, according to the FBI. The suspect implied that he had a weapon although none was visible.

The robber grabbed the money and fled on foot. A green Ford Probe was seen in the area, but it was not immediately known if the car was connected to the robbery.

The suspect was in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9, about 160 pounds with a light brown mustache and goatee.

He wore a white fishing-style hat, a long sleeved blue shirt with a short-sleeved blue shirt over it, light colored pants, reflective sunglasses and black shoes.

The Oklahoma Banker's Association is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for the suspect's arrest and conviction.
