Man robs Guaranty Bank branch in Atwater

Police are on the lookout after a man robbed a Guaranty Bank on Tuesday.

The robbery was reported around 9:30 a.m. after the lone robber walked into the bank, located at 1329 Broadway, wearing a white mask, demanding money from a teller, according to Detective Armando Echevarria.

Witnesses did not see a weapon, although the man was holding his hand near his waist, Echevarria said.

Echevarria said the robbery took about 30 seconds. The robber left with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was hurt during the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black man in his late 20 to early 30s. He's between 5-feet-6 inches and 5-feet-10-inches tall, and weighs between 150 and 170 pounds.

Echevarria said police are reviewing video surveillance footage from the bank, and more details will be available later.

Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call (209) 357-6396. Callers can remain anonymous.
