ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A man claiming to be armed robbed a bank Monday on Anchorage’s east side.

Anchorage police say a man walked into the First National Bank on east Northern Lights Boulevard and handed a note to a teller.

The note demanded money and indicated the man and companions were armed.

The man left with cash and drove off in a red sport utility vehicle with a black tailgate and spare tire on the back. Two other people were in the SUV.

No one was injured.

Police received a call on the robbery at 12:30 p.m.

The suspect in the bank was described as a thin African-American man in his 20s or 30s. He wore a “doo-rag” on his head under a hat and a tan jacket over a gray, zip-up sweater.
