A brazen bank robber didn’t try to cover his face when he walked into the M&T Bank and handed the teller a note demanding money.

It happened around 3:45 in the afternoon Friday at the bank branch on Niagara Falls Boulevard, right across from the Boulevard Mall in Amherst.

Police say after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the man fled on foot.

The suspect is described as white, 5’8” tall with a thin build. He is between 35- to 45-years-old and was wearing a blue baseball cap, grey hooded sweatshirt and a dark packpack.

Anyone with information should call Amherst Police at 716-689-1336.
