SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport police are asking the public's help to identify a man believed to be responsible for a robbery attempt at a bank last week.

Officers rushed to the Carter Federal Credit Union in the 6800 block of West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop on May 25 on reports of a robbery.

The bank teller told police that a bearded man dressed in a jumpsuit, work boots, a tan hat and wearing what appeared to be a white bandage on his nose entered the bank and told the teller that he would like to cash a check.

The man then reportedly handed the teller a note that said he had a gun.

Police say the teller stepped away from the counter and the man ran away from the bank in a white SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator.

Police were able to recover video from the bank and are releasing photos in hopes of getting the robber identified.

Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the person responsible for this crime.

Tips can be called anonymously at 318-673-7373.
