Lakewood police are searching for a man who robbed a bank Friday afternoon.

The holdup happened about 11:45 a.m. at a Pacific International Bank branch near S. Tacoma Avenue and 86th Street.

A man walked up to the teller and handed her a note demanding money. He then fled with the cash and the note.

A police dog is being used to search the area around the bank.
