LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Lake Charles Police Department is working to find the suspect involved in this afternoon's bank robbery, according to Mark Kraus, spokesman for LCPD. 

Around 3:30 p.m. Friday a suspect entered the J.P. Morgan Chase Bank at the intersection of N. Martin Luther King Highway and Moeling Streets and demanded a large amount of cash, said Kraus.

The suspect took the cash and fled the scene in a small SUV. The Lake Charles Police Department made a Facebook post with a picture of the suspect and is asking for the public's help in this investigation. 

The suspect is a black male, 6'3", bald, medium complexion, wearing a camouflage shirt and blue jeans, Kraus said. The suspect was unarmed. If you have any information regarding this crime LCPD asks that you call Sgt. Franklin Fondel at 337-491-1311 or CrimeStoppers at 337-439-2222.
