PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man wearing a wig and a fake beard attempted to rob a Wells Fargo bank in southeast Portland.

Police said the man entered the bank at 12005 Southeast Division Street at 11:34 a.m. Saturday and demanded money from the teller.

Investigators said the man did not make any threats and did not display a weapon. He left without obtaining any cash.

Several officers searched the area, but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description.

He is described as a white man, 5'5" with a medium build and hazel eyes. He was wearing a blue plaid shirt, blue plaid shorts over jeans, white athletic shoes, sunglasses and what appeared to be a wig and a fake beard.

Police released surveillance photos from the bank on Monday. Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has other information about this investigation is asked to contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at 503-823-1080 or brett.hawkinson@portlandoregon.gov; or the Portland field office of the FBI at 503-224-4181.
