EUGENE, Ore. -- A man wearing shutter shades robbed a Eugene bank Thursday afternoon by handing a teller a note demanding money, police said.

At around 5:30 p.m. police responded to a robbery at the U.S. Bank branch inside of the Albertson's supermarket on Coburg Road.

Officials said that the man handed a demand note to one of the bank clerks, took some cash and left the store on foot. 

Responding officers searched the area but couldn't find the robber, police said.

Eugene police described the man as a white, about 6 feet, 4 inches tall, skinny with blue eyes.

Witnesses said the man was seen wearing "shutter shades" hanging around his chin, a style of sunglasses popularized by Kanye West. The man also had on a black baseball hat, black pants, a gray jacket and a white T-shirt.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the police.
