SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - A robbery at a Springfield bank is under investigation Saturday afternoon.

Several police officers responded to Guaranty Bank at 2109 North Glenstone Ave. shortly after 11:30 a.m. A bank employee called 911 right around that time to alert police about a robbery in progress.

Police say a man came in and passed a note to a teller saying he had a weapon and demanded money. It’s unclear if a weapon was used in the robbery, but the man escaped from the building with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police.

No one is hurt, but no arrests have been made in the investigation. The FBI recently released a surveillance photo of the suspect. He is described as a man in his mid-50′s with a plaid polo style shirt and a possible black eye.
