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.

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