Mount Pleasant police are asking for help find the man who robbed Community State Bank Friday afternoon.

Officers were called at 1:03 p.m. for a hold up alarm at the bank, 8930 Washington Avenue. When police arrived, witness said the suspect entered the bank and handed a teller a note demanding money. After he received an undisclosed amount of cash, the man exited the bank on foot, going east toward Fountain Hills Drive.

A weapon was not displayed.
