PHOENIX -

Take a look at this suspect -- the surveillance photo isn't the greatest, but the FBI says he robbed a Wells Fargo Bank on Monday.

The branch is located inside a Bashas' grocery store near Warner and 48th Street.

Authorities say the suspect approached a teller and presented her with a note indicating he had a weapon and demanded she give him all the money in her drawer.

After the teller complied and gave him a known amount of cash, the suspect walked out of the store in an unknown direction.

Police say when officers checked neighboring businesses for witnesses and surveillance cameras, they discovered the suspect and another person, who is described as an investigative lead, were at a nearby Chuck E. Cheese restaurant prior to the robbery.  Officials state "only the described suspect entered the bank."

The suspect is described as an Indian or Hispanic male in his early to mid 20s, 5' 2" to 5' 4" tall with a stocky build, 180 to 200 pounds with a dark complexion and a mustache.  He was wearing a shiny black shoulder-length wig, tan baseball cap with blue visor and unknown lettering on the front, a plaid jacket, black t-shirt, dark shorts, white socks and black shoes.

If you have any information about this case, contact the FBI at 623-466-1999.
