Detroit police are seeking help to find a young woman accused of robbing a Comerica bank this week.

The woman entered the bank in the 18000 block of Woodward at 1:05 p.m. Thursday, approached the teller and handed her a note demanding money, officials said in a statement.

“The note also indicated that the suspect was armed with a bomb,” police said.

After the teller gave her an undisclosed amount of money, the woman fled on foot.

Investigators describe her as an African-American female, believed to be 17-21 years old, approximately 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing about 140 pounds. She was last seen wearing a gray skull-cap, blue denim jacket and blue jeans.

Comerica also is offering a $2,000 reward for any tips leading to an arrest, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department Criminal Investigation Unit at (313) 596-1240 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
