Iowa City police are looking for any information that could lead to the arrest of a man who committed a robbery Wednesday night at Hills Bank located on Muscatine Avenue.

According to a release from the Iowa City police, a woman was in her vehicle at the bank's night-deposit box when a man ran up to her window and grabbed her wrist as she was depositing a bag of cash. The man allegedly told her to give him the money, and she complied. The victim did not report seeing a weapon, and the man fled eastbound from the bank.

Police responded to the scene at 8:29 p.m. and spoke with the woman, who described the man as an African American approximately 5-10, 170 pounds. He appeared to be in his mid-20s and had a light complexion with freckles. He was reported to be wearing a gray ski mask, blue jeans, a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, and tennis shoes.
