PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Paducah police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man and two possible accomplices who robbed a Paducah bank.

It happened at the U.S. Bank branch at Kentucky Oaks Mall Friday afternoon.

Police were called at 3:11 p.m. A teller said the man walked into the bank and demanded money. The man said he had a gun, but did not display one. The robber left on foot in the direction of Gander Mountain with an undetermined amount of cash.

There was one customer in the bank at the time. No one was injured.

Officers were in the mall area when the call was dispatched, and were on the scene quickly.

Officer Nathan Antonites and his K9 partner, Junior, tracked the robber to a spot where investigators believe he possibly got into a vehicle.

The robber is described as a white male, approximately 5'8" and thin with light-colored facial hair, wearing a red sweatshirt.

Police have also released a description of two possible accomplices.

The first is a bi-racial male, approximately 6'3" with a large frame, last seen wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey. The second is a white female, short, with brown hair, last seen wearing a white sundress with a blue pattern.

Anyone with information about the robber's or the two possible accomplices' identities or locations, or who was in the area of the bank at the time of the robbery and saw anything suspicious, is asked to call the Paducah Police Department at 270/444-8550.

You also may call Crime Stoppers at 270-443-TELL. Tipsters may text their tips to "CRIMES" (274637) by entering "KyTips" followed by their information, or by visiting the Crime Stoppers website at westkycrimestoppers.info.
