Martinez said the suspect did not display a weapon. Described as a white male, 5-foot-7, with brown hair and wearing a surgical mask, black beanie and black jacket, the suspect was last seen on foot heading westbound from the bank.

Police initially closed the area of the bank to motorists as they searched for the man, but he eluded capture.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Orem police at 801-229-7070.
