ST. LOUIS — The FBI is looking for a man who robbed a bank in north St. Louis then used a strange getaway vehicle — a bicycle.

The robbery happened Tuesday at the Midwest Credit Union in Florissant. The FBI said the man showed a gun and ordered everyone in the bank to get on the ground, then jumped a counter and grabbed an undisclosed amount of money.

He then ran outside, jumped on a bike and rode away.

It was the 46th bank robbery in the FBI's St. Louis Division this year.

Another bicycle used in yet another bank robbery? Do we see a pattern of sorts here?
