TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are asking for the public's help to find an attempted robbery suspect.

The incident happened March 11, as a man entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 802 W. Ajo Way and attempted to rob the bank. 

According to TPD the suspect walked up to the teller window and handed the teller a note, which implied the man would hurt the teller if she refused to give him the money.  The teller took the note and instead of complying with the suspect's request, according to police, she announced that a robbery was in progress and then ducked down behind the counter and bullet proof glass. 

The suspect quickly left the bank after the teller did this, according to police, without any money.  No one was injured during the course of the attempted robbery. 

Witnesses at the scene say the suspect got into a new model (2006-2010) silver colored passenger car, which then sped away from the bank. 

Tucson Police are describing the suspect as a Caucasian or Hispanic male, from mid-20s to mid-30s, approximately 5'7" to 5'8" tall weighing about 185 pounds, with dark hair.  He was last seen wearing a dark long sleeved t-shirt, tan pants and dark sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the suspect's identity or whereabouts is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
