Laramie County deputies are searching for a man wanted for robbing a woman outside a bank in east Cheyenne late Friday afternoon.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Capt. Linda Gesell says deputies were called to Wells Fargo Bank at 3600 E. Pershing Boulevard around 4:50 p.m.

Gesell says a man approached a woman while she was making a deposit.

"He threw her into the bushes and got her money," said Gesell.  "The guy then ran to a vehicle and they took off."

Gesell didn't have a description of the suspect or the vehicle he left in.

"We are waiting for video," she said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Laramie County Combined Communications Center at (307) 637-6524 or Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at (307) 638-TIPS.​
