Providence Police are searching for a man responsible for robbing a Sovereign Bank on Monday afternoon.

A witness said that a man walked into the bank, carrying a pillow case. He then proceeded to point a hang gun at the bank teller and said, "Hurry up and give me all the money, honey. I have a gun."

The teller filled the pillow case with money and then the suspect left the bank in a black vehicle with a Massachusetts license plate, driven by a white male.

The suspect is a 6-foot 2-inch black male, weighing around 180 pounds. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Providence Police Detectives at (401) 243-6406.
