Buffalo law enforcement officials are seeking assistance this week in tracking down a bank robber.

Police say that shortly after opening for business Sept. 12, a bank teller at First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Rochester on Genesee Street was approached by a customer who handed her a note demanding money and warning her not to make any false moves.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber left. He was last seen walking east on Genesee. No weapon was displayed, but the robber was carrying a newspaper that may have contained a weapon.

The robber was described as a black male, about 30 years old, 5 foot 10, with a stocky build.

If you have any information regarding this crime or any other other unsolved felony, please call the Crime Stoppers coordinators at 856-5600.

You could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. All callers to Crime Stoppers are assured anonymity. They will be issued a code number that will be used for all conversations and the issuance of any reward offered.

Informants never testify, and their identity is never known.
