Tucson police are seeking information about a man who robbed a Midtown credit union Friday.

The suspect walked into the Tucson Federal Credit Union, 3801 E. Speedway, at about 12:46 p.m., with a handgun, ordered customers and employees to the floor and demanded money from the tellers, said Tucson Police Department spokesman Matt Ronstadt.

The police were notified and arrived in two minutes, but the man fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, Ronstadt said.

The man is described as white, 25 to 35 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighing 170 to 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap — possibly under a blue knit cap, dark sunglasses, dark pants and a gray long-sleeved shirt with horizontal stripes and white bands around the collar and sleeves.

A similar-looking man robbed the credit union on Jan. 5.

Anyone with information is asked call 911 or 88-CRIME.
