PHOENIX -

Authorities are looking for a man they call a person of interest in an attempted robbery of a Phoenix bank.

FBI spokesman Manuel Johnson says the man is a "person of interest" in Saturday's attempted robbery at a Bank of America branch, but he declined to explain the man's connection to the crime.

A Bank of America employee was taken hostage at her home Friday night and brought to the bank the next morning by a suspect. She had a device put on her neck that looked like a bomb but turned out not to be an explosive.

The suspect waited outside while the employee went inside, but eventually drove away.

The person of interest is pictured in Target store surveillance photos from December 20, 2012.

The FBI is also asking for help identifying a man who robbed a US Bank at 1159 W. Chandler Blvd -- the same day as the attempted robbery at Bank of America.

The bank is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to convictions.

No arrests have been made.

TIPLINE: FBI at (623) 466-1366 or online at www.BanditTrackerArizona.com

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
