A man who held up an Indian Wells bank at gunpoint Tuesday is at large, and police are looking for the public's help in tracking him down.
According to Riverside County Sheriff's Corporal Angel Ramos, the robbery happened just before noon at the Pacific Western Bank located at 74-750 Highway 111 in Indian Wells, just west of Cook Street.
"Preliminary information revealed that an adult male suspect entered the bank and brandished a firearm," Ramos said. "The suspect demanded money from a teller and the teller complied with those demands."
That man then apparently ran with the cash from the bank, and was last seen headed northbound, Ramos said.
He's described as white, approximately 6"01" tall, 215-220 pounds, with "acne marks" and facial hair.
Ramos said the man was wearing a dark shirt, dark-colored pants and white shoes.
"The investigation is ongoing and we are reaching out to the public and asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Investigator Jessica Vanderhoof by calling the Palm Desert Station at 760-836-1600 or by calling Crime Stoppers at 760-341-STOP," Ramos said.
