WASHINGTON –The FBI has released photos and a description of the man they say walked into a PNC bank on Martin Luther King Avenue Friday and robbed it in broad daylight.

Police say at approximately 12:45 pm on Friday, an unknown suspect entered the PNC Bank at 2000 Martin Luther King Avenue SE, D.C., and approached the teller. He passed a note to the teller and demanded money. Upon receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect then left the bank, according a “wanted” poster issued by the FBI on Friday night.

Police describe him as a twenty-something black man, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall, thin build and wearing a mustache. He was also wearing a blue “bucket-style hat” with a white band, a dark-colored short-sleeved shirt with a graphic design on the front, and dark pants.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the suspect.
