Sandra Yi ReportingPark City police are still looking for a gunman who robbed a bank yesterday. Now authorities are asking for your help in identifying him.

The robbery happened yesterday at about 4:20. A man walked into the Mountain West Bank in Park City, armed with a large caliber revolver.

The man ordered bank employees and customers on the floor. He handed a teller a backpack, which the employee filled with an undetermined amount of cash. He then took off through a side door.

Police say he was threatening, and could be dangerous.

Sgt. Mark Schaerrer, Park City Police Dept.: "We believe that he could be very violent, just in his actions and mannerisms. So we're concerned because he did brandish a firearm and he was very forceful with the people in the bank."

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 30’s. He's about 5 feet '7 inches tall and 170 pounds. He has short brown or black hair with sideburns. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and blue gloves.

During the robbery his face was covered by a hat and mask. The backpack he was carrying was black and green with yellow stripes.

One noticeable characteristic about the suspect, police says he walks with a very noticeable limp as if one leg is shorter than the other.

If you have any information, you can call the Park City Police Department at 435-615-5500.
