Local authorities are still searching for a man suspected of robbing the U.S. Bank branch in Frisco.

Though Frisco Police Department contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the local law enforcement will handle the investigation, said Frisco executive assistant to the town manager Theresa Paul.

According to police, at approximately 2 p.m. on Friday, a white male roughly six feet in height with brown hair handed a note to a teller indicating his intentions. He then lifted his shirt to reveal what the teller believed to be the butt of a handgun. The teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money, and the man fled on foot and may or may not have entered a vehicle in the parking lot.

An eyewitness indicated that customers were unaware a robbery was in progress until after the suspect fled.

The suspect’s likeness was captured on video camera, but authorities have not identified the man. U.S. Bank could not comment on the robbery due to the impending investigation.
