Redlands police were looking for a man armed with a handgun who fled Thursday morning after robbing a bank.

The man displayed the gun in his waistband and demanded money about 9 a.m. from two tellers at a Security Bank of California branch at 201 E. State St., the Redlands Police Department said in a statement.

Police released video footage that showed a teller placing money in a dark bag that the man was holding.

The robber left the bank and got into a 2005 to 2008 metallic candy apple red Mustang coupe and drove through an alley before leaving the area on Redlands Boulevard, police said.

The man is described as white, 55 to 60 years old, about 6 feet 3 inches tall, with blond or grey hair. He was last seen wearing a tan baseball cap, a light green short-sleeve shirt and tan or khaki pants, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Kelvin Bryant at (909) 798-7659. Anonymous tips can be left by texting 274367 using the keyword "REDTIP."
