The suspected green-masked bank robber turned himself into the police Saturday evening.

The man, wearing a green Halloween mask and a dark hoodie, brandished a handgun in a Key Bank at 1939 W. 4700 South just before noon Friday, according to Unified Police. He yelled that it was a robbery, handed the tellers a plastic bag and told them to put money in it, according to police. After the tellers gave the man some cash, he left the bank and was seen leaving in a white car, possibly a Honda or Toyota.
