POMPANO BEACH, Fla. Superman's "S" emblem remains an iconic symbol of the comic book hero who fights villains. But on Tuesday a bank robber in Pompano Beach wore it with pride. 

It was in the form of a colorful tattoo on his right arm. Without wearing a disguise, the man walked into a Wells Fargo bank, 3885 North Federal Highway, in Pompano Beach.

About 4:35 p.m., the bank robber approached a bank teller and looked right into the surveillance camera calmly.  Michael D. Leverock, a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, released three photos showing a man handing a note to a woman working as a teller.

"There were customers in the bank, there were no injuries," Leverock said in an e-mail. "Money was taken, but the amount will not be released at this time. The robber left the area on foot."

The FBI is asking anyone with information to call 754-703-2000.
