Police are searching for the suspect who robbed a bank in Tempe Wednesday afternoon.

Arizona State University Police took to Twitter around 1:30 p.m. to urge people to avoid the area of Mill Avenue and University Drive due to an “increased police presence.”

According to a police spokesperson, a man robbed the bank and officers were unable to locate him afterward.

Tempe police say he has a tattoo on the top of his left hand.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call the Tempe Police Department.
