PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Paducah police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who they say robbed the First National Bank on Jefferson Street on Friday afternoon.

Bank employees told police that a man walked into the bank about 2:20 p.m., went behind the counter and demanded money.

The employees gave the man an undetermined amount of cash and he fled on foot.

Police say the robber did not display a weapon or threaten the use of a weapon.

He ran out of the bank with the cash in his hands. He last was seen running west on Jefferson Street.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5'11" to 6'2" and around 200 pounds with an average build. He was wearing a light-colored long-sleeved shirt, dark pants, dark shoes, jersey gloves and a mask over his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Paducah Police Department at 270/444-8550 or Crime Stoppers at 443-TELL.
