REDDING, Calif. - No arrest has been made yet for the Friday robbery at the Union Bank of California, according to the Redding Police Department.

Investigators said they are working on several leads.

The robbery happened Friday just before 2:10 p.m. at the Union Bank of California, in downtown Redding.

An unarmed male suspect entered the bank and demanded money, according to Redding police. The suspect left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. 

Action News Now asked why money was given to the suspected bank robber when it was stated that he was not armed.

The suspect walked in and demanded money from the teller, according to a Sergeant from the Redding Police Department. The teller was in fear, and he said she believed that the robber was armed. That, he said, is why she gave the robber some cash. RPD is not disclosing how much money was taken from the bank.

Officers from the Redding Police Department along with California Highway Patrol Air Operations Division searched the area for the suspect on Friday.

Police said the suspect was described as a white male adult, unknown age, approximately 5"5 tall, thin build, thinning dark hair, dark colored collared shirt and dark shorts.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Redding Police Department at 530 225-4200.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
