BIRMINGHAM, AL - A teller at Wells Fargo bank on Birmingham’s Southside did not get a sweet treat on this Valentine’s Day from a man who walked in, flashed a gun and swiftly demanded money. Now, Birmingham police are looking for a black male spotted in the bank’s surveillance video wearing eye-glasses, along with a black baseball cap with white lettering, a grey shirt and brown leather jacket. The suspect is estimated to weigh around 200lbs and stands around 5 –foot-10 or 5-foot-11.
Pictures and an updated description of the gunman came after Birmingham Police initially arrested another man in the area who was identified by the teller. However, after a closer review of surveillance video, other facts and more information from the teller, investigators quickly realized that the real robber was still on the run. 
Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards tells Alabama’s 13  that around 4:49 p.m. Friday, the suspect walked into the bank located on Sixth Avenue South and 24th Street showed a teller a weapon tucked under his jacket and demanded money. The gunman then fled the bank on foot with a few hundred dollars in cash.
No one was hurt in the robbery. Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Birmingham
 Birmingham police at (205) 254-1764 or  (205) 254-7777. Your tips will remain anonymous.
