The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Philadelphia Police Department began asking the public for help Friday to identify a man in connection with an attempted bank robbery in Kensington.

The incident occurred May 23 around 9:30 a.m. at a Wells Fargo Bank branch at 1837 East Allegheny Avenue.

Authorities say a man entered the bank and showed a teller a note demanding money. The teller was able to activate an alarm and the suspect fled the area without receiving anything.

The male suspect is described as a 5-foot-7 Latino in his 30s with a medium build and black beard.

An unspecified cash reward is being offered for information that leads to the suspect's arrest.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at (215) 418-4000.
