Police say a suspect robbed a bank with a AR-15 style rifle on Saturday.

The suspect allegedly walked into a Bank of the West near Van Buren Street and 95th Avenue.

The suspect is described as an unknown race male, unknown age, 5'10" tall, thin build 140 lbs, wearing a face mask, a bandana covering his neck area, a grey sweatshirt with a hoodie, grey sweatpants and was carrying a red backpack.
