Parker Police are looking for a suspected robber who wore a fake beard and mustache during the crime, and a person of interest who may be able to help authorities identify that suspect.  

On Thursday, armed and disguised with a nylon mask, the suspect, who appeared to also have laser light, ordered customers to the floor at gunpoint and stole an undisclosed amount of cash before leaving the Champion Bank, located in the area of Lincoln Avenue and Jordan Road, according to information released by the Parker Police Department. 

No one was hurt in the robbery, police said. 

The robbery suspect is being described as a black male, measuring 6-feet tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants. 

Police are also looking for a person of interest who they said was in the bank on Monday, and who may have more information that could help authorities catch the suspect.  

Douglas County School officials said many buildings were on a brief lockout as police searched for the suspect in the area. 

If you any information that could help law enforcement, they are asking that you contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867).
