ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Investigators with the St. Charles Police Department are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a Regions Bank branch Wednesday afternoon.

According to Lt. Chad Fisk, a police spokesman, the robbery took place just before 12:30 p.m. in the 400 block of First Capital Drive.

Police did not indicate if the suspect was armed, Fisk said.

Police described the suspect as a Caucasian man in his mid-20s, with blondish hair and a scruffy beard, wearing a brown shirt with white horizontal stripes, and a white Cardinals hat with a red “STL” logo.
