On Thursday, June 18, 2009, at approximately 5:45 p.m., the TCF Bank, located in Cub Foods at 1440 West University Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota, was robbed by a lone individual. The robber entered the bank, approached the victim teller, and verbally demanded cash while keeping one hand inside a brown paper Panera bread bag. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money from the teller, he placed the cash into his pocket and departed the bank on foot. He was last seen entering a white, late model Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon sport utility vehicle with tinted windows in the Cub parking lot and departing the area.

He was wearing a light, long sleeved collared shirt with a subtle darker pattern, dark pants, white sneakers, a dark colored hat with a front logo, and dark sunglasses.
