Police say the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous, and ask anyone who has information on the bank robbery to share what they know at 586-447-4483.

Roseville Police are looking for a Detroit man suspected of robbing a bank 10 days ago, officials said.

Ivan Austin, 20, is wanted in connection with the robbery of a Fifth Third Bank branch on Gratiot Avenue and south of Frazho Road, police said Thursday.

Officials also said the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office has authorized a warrant for Austin's arrest. They also re-released a picture of the robbery suspect.

Investigators said he is known to have last lived in the 19000 block of Tracey Street near West Seven Mile Road and Schaefer Highway on Detroit's west side, but he may be homeless.

Officials said anyone with information on Austin's whereabouts should call Roseville Police at (586) 447-4483 and no one should attempt to take him into custody alone.
