PHOENIX - In a "blink of an eye," or so it seemed, a man dressed as Santa entered a North Phoenix bank, demanded cash and made his get away.
The suspect was caught on surveillance camera at the Bank of America near I-17 and Happy Valley Road.
A witness said when he came in, she immediately knew something was up.
"I thought that was going to happen, " said Laura Farrell. "People just don't come into banks in full costume without being up to something."
The FBI is investigating, and said the man got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was injured. FBI officials tell ABC15 that no weapon was seen, and they do not have any descriptions of a possible get-away car.
It is unclear whether he had any helpers.
