A man suspected of robbing the Credit Union 1 on Eureka Street in Midtown Anchorage on Saturday afternoon took off on foot "with an undisclosed amount of money," FBI spokeswoman Staci Feger-Pellessier said.
The man wore a black mask covering his face, black gloves, and a red-and-white plaid shirt or jacket, Feger-Pellessier said. He was brandishing a gun inside the credit union, she said, and he's about 5 feet, 9 or 10 inches tall.
Anchorage police responded to a report of a robbery at the credit union just after 1:15 p.m. Police set up a perimeter in the area of 36th Avenue and C Street in search of a suspect, police dispatch supervisor Ashley Kendall said.
Police confirmed the robbery, said police spokesman MJ Thim, and the investigation was then turned over to the FBI, standard procedure for bank robberies. Police are assisting the FBI with the investigation, Thim said.
There were no injuries, Thim said.
There were about 10 police vehicles involved when the perimeter was set up, Kendall said.
The FBI is asking anyone who recognizes the man to call 907-276-4441.
