Southfield — Police in Southfield are asking the public’s help in finding an alleged bank robber.

The suspect is believed to be responsible for a number of bank robberies in Southeast Michigan in 2015 in Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties, and has allegedly already gotten to work in 2016.

On Jan. 16 at about 11:30 a.m., the man handed a teller a note demanding money at the Huntington Bank at the 23100 block of Greenfield Road.

“A weapon was not seen or implied,” Southfield police say, but the teller complied with the suspect’s demand. The suspect left on foot, evading the police who canvassed the area.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Police describe the suspect as a man about 50 or 60 years of age. He has a light to medium complexion, gray facial hair, and has a number of missing or crooked teeth. At the time of the incident, he wore a black and gray jacket, a yellow or orange hoodie, a gray knit hat, blue jeans, and white athletic shoes with black trim, police say.

Southfield police are investigating and are asking anyone who can identify the suspect to call (248) 796-5500.
