BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Police in West Virginia are searching for a man they said robbed a bank while wearing a monkey mask.

Beckley police Lt. David Allard tells The Register-Herald that the man was unarmed when he entered the City National Bank in a hoodie and mask early Monday. Allard says the man handed a note detailing his demands to a clerk, who complied and provided the man with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He says witnesses reported seeing the robber flee the scene on a bicycle that was later found abandoned. The mask and pieces of the robber’s clothing also were found discarded. Police dogs began assisting in the search by Monday afternoon.
