Pierce County sheriff’s detectives are trying to identify a man who tried to rob a bank in University Place this week.

The attempted robbery occurred about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday at a Key Bank branch in the 2400 block of Mildred Street West.

A man entered the bank and gave a teller a note demanding cash. He then yelled at the teller and another employee. Detectives said he snatched the note back and ran out of the bank without any money.

The would-be robber is black, about 20 years old, 5-feet-4 and 140 pounds. He was wearing black-rimmed glasses, a green camouflage New York Yankees baseball hat, blue jeans and a light gray hooded sweatshirt over a white T-shirt.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man. Call them at 253-591-5959.
