There's a bank robber on the loose, and unlike the vast majority of bank robbery suspects, this one's a chick.

Phoenix police Detective Mike Fischer tells New Times that the robbery occurred yesterday at the Chase Bank at 6000 North 19th Avenue in Phoenix around 2:30 p.m.

Fischer says the suspect (that's her mug in the photo), a woman with acne scars on her cheeks, walked up to the teller and handed over a demand note asking for cash.

No weapon was seen, but the teller handed over an unknown amount of money and the robber fled on foot.

No getaway vehicle was seen.

The suspect is described as a white female, 25 to 30 years old, 5-foot-3, and 140 pounds.

Fischer says, at the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing dark sunglasses, dark-blue medical scrubs, white shoes, and was carrying a large black purse. Her eyebrows were also apparently drawn onto her face.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
