Boulder City police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who they allege robbed a Nevada State Bank branch in the Vons supermarket, 1031 Nevada Highway, on Monday.

Just before noon a man wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses approached the teller at Nevada State Bank and demanded money, police said. The teller handed over money from her drawer, and the man left the bank heading toward Nevada Highway on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He showed no weapon, and there were no injuries, police said. He had left the scene by the time police arrived.

A man meeting his description also attempted bank robberies in Las Vegas, police said — a Wells Fargo Bank branch at Eastern Avenue and Charleston Boulevard just two hours before the Boulder City robbery, and on Saturday, a US Bank inside Smith’s at Rancho Drive and Charleston Boulevard.

Police are looking for a white man in his mid-20s to early 30s, 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall, weighing 160 to 180 pounds and wearing a green, long-sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up. He is also described as wearing light blue jeans, dark shoes and a green camouflage baseball cap. He is said to have a sandy-colored thin mustache and goatee and was carrying a light blue back pack with white lettering and a black outline, police said.

The Boulder City Police Department’s Detective Bureau and the FBI are investigating.

Anyone who can help identify the man is asked to call the Boulder City Police Department, 293-9224.
