OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Authorities are trying to find a gun-wielding man who robbed a bank on the northwest side.

The man, described as white and in his late 40s, entered the Commercial Federal Bank about 9 a.m. Thursday, the FBI said.

Surveillance photographs show the man _ 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 230 to 250 pounds _ reaching inside his jacket as he entered the bank.

The man pulled out a gun and demanded that a teller stuff money into a white pillowcase, according to an FBI news release.

No one was injured during the robbery.

The man was described as having a graying mustache and goatee, brown medium-length hair and a large birthmark or tattoo on the right side of his neck.

He was last seen walking west along N.W. 23rd Street, the FBI reported. He may have a limp.

The man was wearing a blue jacket with a brown collar, a white T-shirt with an American flag imprint and the words ``God Bless America,'' white gloves, sunglasses and blue jeans.

The Commercial Federal Bank is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the identification and conviction of the robber.
