Police are looking for a man who robbed a southwest Fort Wayne bank Wednesday morning while sporting ski goggles and full winter gear.

Officers responded at about 9:40 a.m. to the PNC Bank at 5610 Coventry Lane, where witnesses said a man came into the bank, approached the counter and handed the teller a note that demanded cash, Fort Wayne Police said in a statement.

The man fled through the front door with an undisclosed amount of cash and went westbound into a nearby residential area, police spokeswoman Officer Raquel Foster said in the statement. No customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery – though several bank employees were present – and no injuries were reported, Foster said.

Police described the robber as a man between 30 and 40 years old, weighing 200 to 250 pounds, with light, reddish facial hair. He was last seen wearing a striped hat, ski goggles with a gold tint, a black “puffy” coat and black “swishy pants” with a white stripe down each pant leg. He also had something – possibly a scarf – around his neck and face.

A police dog tracked the man westbound from the bank, but the trail ended in the 5100 block of Coventry Lane, Foster said. Crime scene investigators went to the scene to process potential evidence, and members of the Northeast Indiana Bank Robbery Task Force interviewed witnesses.

Police also distributed surveillance photos of the man.
