THORNTON, Colo. — Thornton Police Department (TPD) asked for the public's help on Monday to find or identify a man who robbed the 1stBank located in a Safeway shopping center at East 104th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. 

Matt Barnes with TPD said the white male approached a teller demanding money. Witnesses said the man was wearing a blue Carhartt hoodie with a yellow bandana covering his face, a gray beanie-style hat and what’s described as "yellow or gold work pants" and black shoes. 

Police said the suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction and they lost sight of him and they believe he went south out of the bank and no car was seen leaving the scene.
