Southfield Police are asking the public for help to find this suspect in a bank robbery.

Southfield police are asking the public for help to identify a man who robbed a bank on Lahser Road on Thursday.

The bank is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the suspect's arrest, officials said Tuesday.

The robbery happened at about 4:40 p.m. Thursday at the Comerica Bank branch at 27100 Lasher near West 11 Mile in Southfield, according to authorities.

Police said the suspect entered the bank and gave a teller a note that demanded money. After he fled the scene on foot, police said.

He is described as a black man, 20-30 years of age, 5-feet-8-inches to 5-feet-10-inches tall with medium-length, wavy hair. He was wearing a beige jacket, dark pants, sunglasses and had a dark bag with an over-the-shoulder strap, officials said.

Southfield Police said this man robbed a Comerica bank branch last week Thursday.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAKUP.
