The robbery happened at 10:50 a.m. Dec. 2 at a bank in the 10800 block of Bellaire Boulevard.

Authorities said the man entered the bank, approached a bank teller and handed the employee a note that stated he had a gun and demanded the money from the cash drawer.

The employee quickly opened the drawer and gave the money to the man, authorities said. Authorities said he then fled in an unknown direction of travel.
