Detroit police are looking for a female who robbed a Comerica Bank branch last week in southwest Detroit.

According to police, around 4:35 p.m. on Dec. 29, a female walked into the bank in the 7700 block of Michigan Avenue and said she was armed with a bomb. She demanded money and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

She is described as approximately 40 years old, 5-foot-2 and 120 pounds.

A video released by police Wednesday shows her running behind a laundromat, changing clothes and then running north toward the Interstate 94 service drive.

Comerica Bank is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for her capture.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives with the 4th Precinct at (313) 596-5440. Citizens can leave anonymous tips through the app, DPD Connect or by calling CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
