Police were searching for the suspect in a bank robbery near Amarillo College Tuesday.

A robbery took place about 1:20 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Bank on 2000 S. Washington Street, according to an Amarillo Police Department release.

The suspect was described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s and about 6-1 to 6-2 with a tall slim build.

The suspect has a full beard with three horizontal stripes on one cheek, believed to be a marker or make up, according to the release.

He was seen wearing a black baseball cap, dark blue jeans and a black T-shirt that may have writing on it.

Police said the suspect used a note to commit the robbery.

The suspect may have gone westbound on a bicycle into the neighboring area, police said.
