A man wearing a black suit and sunglasses robbed a Bank of America branch at 8040 Academy Road NE, in Albuquerque, on Thursday (10/31/2013).

The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are looking for a slender man described as approximately 5'10" tall, about 18 to 25 years old, with black hair.

The suspect, who may be of Asian descent, wore a black suit, white shirt, and large sunglasses.

Witnesses say a man walked up to the bank inside a Smith's grocery store at approximately 11 a.m. and gave a teller a note that demanded money.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money to the suspect, who walked away.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense, and the penalty increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.

Anyone with information about this bank robbery is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI Office at (505) 889-1300 (24 hours) or Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (505) 843-STOP.

The FBI may pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
