AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are searching for a man who robbed a Chase Bank branch in south Austin, Monday afternoon.

Officers, located at a nearby police department substation, say they were able to get to the bank quickly around 3:10 p.m.

Police say the man, described as a 30-40 year-old black male, walked into the bank at 140 W. Slaughter Ln. — just west of Interstate 35 — and handed a teller a note demanding money. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded t-shirt, white cap, a long black sleeve over his right arm and gray sweatpants with black on the front (that look like shorts being worn over sweatpants).

The man was also wearing dark sunglasses, gray/black tennis shoes and had a black backpack with him. He is described by police as 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall and weighing 190 pounds, with a muscular build and goatee.

He never displayed a weapon and was last seen walking northbound on Cullen Lane with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

Two customers were inside the bank at the time, but were around the corner from where the robbery was happening.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the APD Robbery Tip Line at 512-974-5092 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS.
