Unified police are looking for a man who walked into a bank on Friday afternoon, robbed it and then drove off in an employee's car.

Lt. Justin Hoyal said the man entered and robbed the Cyprus Credit Union, 13717 S. Redwood Road, about 3:55 p.m. Hoyal said the man somehow got access to a bank employee's keys and escaped in her car. He said police later found the car abandoned on a side roadway and were searching for the man near the Jordan River area.

No one was injured.

Hoyal said police are looking for a white man who is about 5-foot-9. He said the man was wearing dark sunglasses, a hooded sweatshirt and had a bandana across his face.
