AVENTURA, Fla. – The FBI is searching for a man who robbed a bank Tuesday afternoon in Aventura.

Michael Leverock, a spokesman for the FBI, said the man entered a Capital Bank branch near Northeast 29th Place and Northeast 203rd Street just before 4 p.m. and demanded money from a bank employee. The robber implied that he had a weapon, Leverock said.

No one was hurt in the robbery, and the man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, Leverock said.

The man disguised himself by wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. He held a multicolored umbrella, Leverock said. 

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
