COTTONWOOD - Cottonwood police swarmed the Bank of America at 611 Main St. and Cottonwood Street Tuesday after a morning robbery at the branch.

Detective Tod Moore said the robbery occurred about 9:35 a.m. and involved a man thought to be about 55 years old with graying hair and mustache, wearing sunglasses and a hoodie over his head.

He is believed to weigh about 190 pounds.

No weapons were shown to the teller, according to police. The suspect kept his hands in his pockets but is believed to have been wearing gloves.

Afterward, the man left on foot. No vehicle was seen.

The Cottonwood incident is similar to the hold-up of the Chase Bank one week earlier in Camp Verde, according to police.

Moore said they want to interview a suspect with a similar description who has lived in Cottonwood in the past, but police have not been able to locate him so far.

There is no indication of the amount of money taken.
