ST. LOUIS • Police say they are looking for a man who fled on a bicycle after robbing a St. Louis bank Monday morning.

The man robbed a Commerce Bank at 3134 South Grand Boulevard about 10 a.m., police say. The man handed a note to a teller demanding money but did not display a weapon.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of money and was described as a white man in his 30s, wearing a do-rag under a baseball cap with the letter C on the front. He was also wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt, long, blue shorts, sandals and a cloth bandage wrapped around his left hand. He also has a tattoo on his left shin. 

He was last spotted riding west on Arsenal Street near Tower Grove Park after the robbery, police said.

A $1,000 reward has been offered through CrimeStoppers for information leading to a felony arrest.
