FBI Searching for Bank Robber in Sunrise

The FBI is looking for a man who robbed a Wells Fargo bank in Sunrise Friday afternoon.

The robbery happened at about 4:15 p.m. at the Wells Fargo branch located at 9001 W. Oakland Park Blvd.

The FBI said the robber entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from a bank employee.

There were customers in the bank at the time of the robbery. No one was injured from physical contact with the robber, but one employee was transported to the hospital. No reason was given for that person's hospitalization.

Money was taken, but no amount was given. The FBI said this robber does not appear to be the serial "Lucky Bandit" robber they are looking for in Broward County, but the investigation continues.

If anyone has information as to the identity of this bank robber, they are urged to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
