ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Police are asking the public’s help in locating a man accused of robbing the TCF Bank Scenic Hills branch on Monday.

The Minneapolis FBI said the robbery took place around 7 p.m. at 1988 Suburban Ave. in St. Paul. The robber allegedly came into the bank, displayed a black handgun and ordered everyone in the bank to lie down on the floor.
