A funds transfer turned into a robbery earlier this week.

At around 3:30 p.m. May 26, police said, a man entered Fifth Third Bank, 23633 Greenfield, and approached a teller, asking about making a transfer.

Police said the suspect then wrote a note on a bank slip and handed it to the teller. According to a news release from Deputy Chief Nick Loussia, the slip told the teller to give the suspect money from the cash drawer.

Loussia said the teller complied with the suspect’s demands and handed over an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then fled the bank on foot. The bank teller was not injured during the incident, Loussia said.

“An area check was conducted for the suspect, but he was not located,” Loussia said in the news release.

According to police, the suspect is a white man, between 35 and 50 years old. He is between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet 1 inch tall and approximately 140 pounds. He was wearing a long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans at the time of the incident.

The Southfield Police Department is looking for residents who have any information regarding the robbery or who can identify the suspect to contact police.

Those with information on the incident are asked to call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
