Glendale police searching for suspect wearing motorcycle gear who robbed MidFirst Bank at gunpoint

GLENDALE, AZ - The Glendale Police Department is asking for help identifying a man who robbed a MidFirst Bank Monday while wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet.

According to police, the incident occurred around 10:20 a.m. at the branch near 67th Avenue and Bell Road.

The suspect reportedly entered the bank with a handgun, and threatened to kill the teller as he demanded money from him.

The suspect continued to point the gun at various other bank employees as he waited for the teller to place an undisclosed amount of money in a black bag he had brought with him.

After receiving the money, the man ran from the bank and fled the area.

Police describe the suspect as having a light complexion and standing just over 6 feet tall, weighing 170 pounds.

The suspect was wearing a black motorcycle jacket, and blue, black and silver motorcycle helmet and black jeans, shoes and gloves.

The helmet is most likely an "AFX-FX-96 Blue-Multi Helmet," according to police.

They say the uniqueness of the helmet may help identify him despite the fact his face was fully covered.

The color or design of his motorcycle may also be similar to that of his helmet.

If you have any information regarding this robbery, contact Glendale Police at 623-930-3000 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
