Police on lookout for robbery suspect

Austin Police are on the lookout for a robbery suspect who's believed to have pink dye all over him. 

This is Austin's first bank robbery of 2016. 

On Friday morning, a male suspect entered the Comerica Bank and displayed a note demanding money from a teller. The robbery occurred at the bank at 2315 E. Anderson Lane.

The suspect left the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash, as well as a dye pack. 

Investigators believe the dye pack exploded onto the suspect, so he will likely have dye on himself and/or his clothing. No weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported. 

Suspect Description:

  • Black male, light complexion
  • Mid 20's to early 30's
  • Approximately 5' 5" - 5' 8"
  • Thin build with facial hair
  • Wearing a black jacket, red button up shirt with a white t-shirt underneath, and a white Nike beanie. 

Money from the robbery somehow scattered onto the sidewalk outside of the bank as the suspect fled.

This case remains under investigation by APD Robbery detectives. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Robbery Tip Line at (512) 974-5092, Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-TIPS or text "Tip 103" + your message to CRIMES. You may be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest or charges being filed. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
