Armed Man Wearing Ski Mask Robs Albuquerque Bank

A man wearing a black ski mask and displaying a silver handgun robbed a southwest Albuquerque bank Monday, February 13, 2017.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5'10” to 6' tall, with a medium to heavy build.

He wore a black ski mask, black baseball cap, dark sweatpants, and a gray hooded sweatshirt with a red stripe across the shoulders, a multi-color logo on the front and possibly the brand name “FUBU” on the back.
