Heavily Tattooed Man Uses Knife to Rob Albuquerque Bank

A man with tattoos on his arms, hands, and neck used a knife to rob an Albuquerque bank on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 30s, approximately 5'2” tall, with a slender build, a mustache, and tattoos on his arms, hands and neck.

He wore a black baseball cap turned backwards, a white T-shirt, gray pants, and sunglasses.

At approximately 3:53 p.m., the suspect entered U.S. Bank, 3801 Isleta Blvd. SW, displayed a knife with a dark blade and demanded money from a teller.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money to the suspect, who left the bank on foot and was last seen in the vicinity of Clinton P. Anderson Park, a few blocks to the north.
