A Cape Girardeau credit union was robbed Friday morning.

Police responded to a holdup alarm at Cape Regional Credit Union, 2427 Cape Centre Drive, according to Cape Girardeau Police Department spokesman Darin Hickey.

While in route police received a call from employees confirming the robbery had happened. A man walked into the bank saying he had a gun and demanded money, and fled on foot southbound with an undetermined amount of cash, Hickey said.

Hickey said the suspect was described as a black male between 6-feet-3-inches and 6-feet-5-inches tall, wearing a long-sleeved striped button-down shirt, black jeans, white shoes and a dark baseball cap.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol airplane that was in the area for another purpose joined the search, Hickey said. A K-9 unit was also used to track the suspect, who still hadn't been caught Friday afternoon.
