Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge authorities are looking for a man wanted in the robbery of a Chase Bank branch.

Casey Rayborn Hicks, a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, says the man, described as about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing between 180 and 190 pounds, entered the bank about noon Monday and passed a note to a teller that indicated he was armed and demanded money.

Hicks tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1kzsDMc ) a weapon was not seen in the man's possession during the robbery.

She says the man fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash in a silver or gray older-model Toyota Camry.

No one was injured during the robbery.
