The FBI is asking for help identifying a man they've dubbed the 'rush hour' robber.

It happened Wednesday at about 5pm. Bank surveillance photos were released of the man who apparently threatened a teller at a Wells Fargo Bank branch on West 20th Street.

Authorities say he handed the teller a threatening note and left with cash. It's unknown if the man was armed. No one was hurt.

The bank robber is described as a white male in his 60s, 5'10" to 6'0", 160 to 180 pounds with a thin to medium build and a pale complexion. He was unshaven with gray whiskers. He wore a black baseball-style hat, a black work-style jacket, and work boots.
