Caught on cam: Milwaukee police need your help to identify bank robbery suspect

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with an attempted armed robbery that happened around 12:20 p.m. on April 22, 2016 at the Pyramax Bank located near 16th and Mitchell Streets.

Despite MPD investigating some leads, the suspect’s identity has not been developed and MPD is now seeking more assistance.

The male suspect walked into the bank and gave the teller a demand note that said he had a gun and wanted money. Before the teller gave him the money, the suspect fled from the scene. Prior to the attempted robbery, the suspect rode in a taxicab which was captured on surveillance video.

The suspect is described as a black male, between the ages of 25 and 30, standing 5’10”-6’ tall and weighing180-200 pounds, with a medium build. He had braided hair, and tattoos on his neck and left hand. He was last seen wearing a black knit hat, a black leather coat with zip pockets, a tan colored dress shirt and tie, dark khaki pants, black gloves, and sunglasses with gold wire frames.
