Shawnee Police and the FBI are investigating after a man robbed the Capitol Federal bank Monday afternoon. Police were called to the bank, located at 5700 Nieman Road, around 3:30 p.m..

Bridget Patton, spokeswoman for the FBI's Kansas City office says the suspect is a Hispanic male wearing a white mask and a hooded sweatshirt.

Bank employees describe the suspect as a Hispanic or black male in his early-mid 20's. He is described as approximately 5-foot, 6-inches tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds with an average build. He was last seen wearing a white mask, black hooded sweatshirt, black jacket and blue jeans.

The FBI confirms the suspect handed the teller a white plastic grocery bag, brandished a small black handgun and demanded money.

It is unclear which direction the suspect fled or if there were any vehicles involved.

Shawnee Police set up a large perimeter in the area, which was then searched by a K-9 unit. That search did not locate any evidence or the suspect.

Police say no one was injured in the incident.
