Bank Robbery Suspect Gets Away On Bike


Police are looking for a robber who held up at a bank and then got away on a bicycle.

The robbery happened Monday morning just before 10 at the Wells Fargo bank on the 500 block of Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.

The suspect reportedly threatened the bank teller, but ultimately left the teller unharmed. Police say no weapon was ever seen, but believe the suspect was carrying one.

The suspect fled the scene on a bike before police arrived.

At this time, it's unknown if the suspect is a man or a woman due to the robber's disguise. Police say he or she had dark skin, and may be black. The suspect was dressed in blue clothing and possibly a wig. He or she is between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall with a medium-to-heavy build.

The suspect was last seen riding north on Chestnut.
