The Temple Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a person they believe robbed a bank.

Police say just after 1:30 p.m. Saturday, a man walked in to the Bank of America in the 3500 block of S. General Bruce Drive. The man presented a note to the clerk and demanded money.

The suspect ran away from the bank with an undisclosed amount of money. He ran on the railroad tracks behind Target.

Police say no weapon was displayed at the time and no one was injured.

The police department says the bank teller believes the man is homeless due to a lack of personal hygiene.

The man is described as a while male, six feet tall, weighing about 130 to 150 pounds. He was wearing a grey long sleeve shirt, dark pants, and sunglasses.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Temple PD at (254) 298-5500 or Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS (8477) or at 1-800-729-TIPS (8477).

The Temple Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are working on the case together.
