FBI agents are asking for assistance in helping to locate a man who robbed a Provo bank Wednesday afternoon.

Agents said a man entered Deseret Federal Savings, 450 W. Eighth North, about 4:55 p.m. Wednesday under the pretense of selling candy. The man wielded an automatic pistol and robbed a teller of an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the bank on foot eastbound on Eighth North.Bank cameras photographed the robber, described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, weighing 250 pounds, with fair skin, wearing blue coveralls, a blue ski cap and blue nylon jacket. The man also used a nylon stocking to cover his face.

FBI agents said they have some leads in the case, but encourage anyone with information about the robbery to contact the FBI at 355-7521 or 374-5332, or Provo Police at 379-6221.
