MIAMI – A man wearing a Miami Marlins T-shirt robbed a Miami bank late Wednesday afternoon, the FBI said.

FBI Special Agent Michael Leverock said the man entered a Wells Fargo branch on Southwest 27th Avenue shortly before 5:30 p.m. and demanded money from an employee.

There were customers in the bank at the time of the robbery, but no injuries were reported.

Leverock didn't say how much money, if any, the man stole.

Surveillance photographs showed the man wearing a white Miami Marlins T-shirt and a hat that covered his eyes.
