The Odessa Police Department is searching for a suspect following a bank robbery this afternoon.

The robbery occurred at the Community National Bank, located at 2659 JBS Parkway in Odessa.

Odessa police said a man walked into the front door of the bank and went to the teller demanding cash.

We're told Patric John O'Connor, 35, fled the scene on foot, southbound on JBS Parkway.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5'4" tall, slim build, with a scruffy looking beard/goatee. He also had tattoos covering both of his arms.
