The Tucson Police Department is requesting the public's assistance identifying a suspect they said robbed a bank on Thursday, June 7.

TPD said around 10:10 a.m., officers responded to a report of a bank robbery at the U.S. Bank located inside the Safeway at 2140 W. Grant Rd.

TPD said a woman approached the two victim tellers and demanded money. She was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled the store on foot, TPD said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic or Native American female, 50-60 years old, 5'3" and 200lbs.

She spoke English and some Spanish, TPD said. She was last seen wearing a plaid long sleeve shirt, black scarf on her head and black sunglasses.
