ARCADIA, Calif. (KABC) -- Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a man wanted in connection with an attempted robbery at an Arcadia bank.
The suspect walked into the Citibank branch at 100 South First Avenue around 1:20 p.m. Monday, approached a teller and allegedly demanded cash. Arcadia police said he showed the teller a small black case and claimed it contained a bomb which he would detonate if the bank worker didn't comply.

The suspect was described as a white male, between 23 and 30 years old, standing 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He has brown hair and was wearing a red long-sleeve sweater and tan baggy shorts.
