BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- The Bloomington Police Department is looking for a man that allegedly robbed PNC Bank, 2217 West Market Street.

Police say the incident happened around 11:30 Friday morning, when the suspect passed a note to the teller implying that he had a weapon, but none was displayed.

The suspect then fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash and headed east toward Farm & Fleet. That's where he got into his dark colored Chevrolet Equinox and drove away.

The suspect was described as a white male in his
50's, 5'10", 170, blondish hair and glasses. The suspect was wearing a blue polo shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

If anyone has any information as to the identity of the suspect, please notify Bloomington Police at 434-2475.
