Tucson police are looking for a man who robbed a Bank of America branch Wednesday and fled on a bicycle, a police spokeswoman said.

Banks employees reported that a man entered the bank in the 4200 block of North Oracle Road and handed a teller a note demanding money while he displayed a hammer, Officer Linda Galindo said.

The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on a bicycle, said Galindo.

The man is described as 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170-190 pounds and 40-50 years old.

He was last seen wearing a black shirt with white lettering, blue jeans, a blue bandanna and a wig, said Galindo.

Robbery detectives ask that anyone with information call 911 or 88-CRIME.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
