COLUMBIA — The Columbia Police Department is looking for a man who robbed a U.S. Bank on Friday afternoon.

A white male, roughly 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing between 165 and 175 pounds, presented a note demanding money to a teller at the bank, located at 1000 E. Broadway. He then fled the bank through the north entrance, ran east and entered the alley next to the Pasta Factory, where he shed his checkered blue shirt.

The suspect did not display a weapon, police said in a news release, but he kept his hand in his pocket and "preliminary information indicates that he implied he had a weapon."

Nine officers, including five patrol officers, two patrol sergeants, a detective and a detective sergeant responded to the scene, according to Columbia Police Sgt. Barbara Buck. The first officer arrived at 12:29 p.m. Buck also said the Major Crimes Unit responded to the robbery.

The suspect is described as roughly 30 years old, wearing a black and green hat with white or off-white slashes and the letters "AMP" and having a reddish beard.  

Police unsuccessfully attempted to track the suspect using its K-9 unit.
