The FBI and Corona police have released surveillance photos as they seek information leading to the arrest of the "Button-down Bandit."

Investigators say the bandit robbed a Bank of America on the 2600 block of Green River Road Friday around 3:42 p.m. The unidentified male walked into the bank and passed a note demanding money from the teller.

The teller complied and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He was described as a white adult male in his 40s and was last seen wearing a blue long sleeve shirt, sunglasses, white hat and a mustache.

The suspect fled westbound on Green River Road in a silver newer model Mazda 4-door sedan/SUV.

FBI authorities responded to assist with the investigation and have indicated that the unidentified male appears to be the "Button-down Bandit." The suspect has struck numerous times in Riverside and Orange County.

Anyone with information about the "Button-down Bandit" was urged to contact the Corona Police Department at (951) 736-2330.
