Police are on the hunt for a man they say is tied to several bank robberies in Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties.

The Southfield Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man responsible for robbing Huntington Bank, 23195 Greenfield Road.

According to a news release from Deputy Chief Nick Loussia, the incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Jan. 16. Loussia said the man entered the bank and handed a teller a note that demanded money.

“A weapon was not seen or implied,” Loussia said in the release. “The bank teller complied with his demand, and the suspect fled the bank on foot. No one was injured in this robbery.”

When officers arrived on the scene they checked the area for the suspect but were not able to locate him.

Loussia said the same suspect is believed to be connected to several other bank robberies last year in Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties.

The suspect is described as a black man, 50-60 years old, with gray facial hair and several missing or crooked teeth. He was wearing a two-toned black and gray jacket with a yellow or orange zip-up hooded sweatshirt, a gray knit hat, blue jeans, and white athletic shoes with black trim.

No one was injured in the robbery, Loussia said.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or who has any information regarding this incident is asked to call the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
