About 1:40 p.m. Tuesday, the guy pictured to the left went into the First Credit Union on the 1200 block of Baseline Road in Tempe, gave the teller a note and "verbally requested money."

Apparently all you have to do is ask nicely for money, because police say the man never threatened or displayed a weapon.
After acquiring the undisclosed amount of cash, the man ran out, hopped a block wall, and hasn't been located since.
Police describe him as black with a long ponytail and some facial hair, 5-foot-10, and about160 pounds, as well as having white paint all over himself.
Police ask anyone with information to call the Tempe Police Department at 480-350-8311, or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
