WEST BOUNTIFUL -- Police are looking for two men responsible for robbing a U.S. Bank on Tuesday.

West Bountiful Police Chief Todd Hixson said police were called to the bank at 278 S. 500 West at 11:30 a.m.

A man wearing dark clothes, sunglasses and a hat walked up to a teller, handed her a note demanding cash and indicated "no one would get hurt if they complied," Hixson said. No weapon was displayed.

Several employees and one customer were in the bank at the time. The customer who witnessed the robbery left the bank before police arrived, Hixson said.

The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash. He ran to an emerald green car in a parking lot across the street at 475 W. 450 South, Bountiful. Hixson said witnesses reported another man drove the car, which is a either a Ford Taurus or Focus-type car, Hixson said.

The man who entered the bank is described as being in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6 feet, 200 pounds with short dark hair.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call West Bountiful Detective Andrew Smith at 801-292-4487.
