FBI seeks Anchorage bank robber

ANCHORAGE — The FBI is hoping the public can help identify a man who robbed an AlaskaUSA Federal Credit Union in south Anchorage.

KTUU says the late morning robbery Thursday at the Hartzell Road branch was the third AlaskaUSA robbery around town in less than two months.

The man in Thursday’s robbery is described as a black man in his mid-20s with a thin build, black hair and thin black mustache. He is between 6-foot-2 and 6-foot4 and was wearing a black pullover hoodie, black pants, black cap and black framed sunglasses.

The FBI says the man handed a note at the teller station, demanding money. The man left with an undisclosed amount of money, and fled the scene on a bicycle.
