CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Police are looking for a man who robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in Chesterfield late Saturday morning.

According to Lt. Dave Higgins, a man walked into the bank on Amberdale Drive around 11:20 a.m. and displayed a long gun. He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police described the suspect as a white male, between 20 to 30 years old of age, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was was wearing a dark-colored ski mask, gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.

This Wells Fargo was also robbed on June 27 and no arrests were made.  Police gave CBS 6 the same suspect description at that time.  

Cbs 6 caught up with Lydia Schlichtcroll who was inside Wells Fargo on June 27 when the masked gunman walked in.  "When the man came in he said put your hands where I  can see and I promise no body gets hurt," she recalled.

Schlichtcroll said since then she has avoided going into the bank. And she could not believe the bank was robbed for the second time in less than a month. 

Schlichtcroll explained. "I hope they find him because this is inbelievable."
