The Laramie County Sheriff's Office has released more information regarding a robbery which took place outside a bank in east Cheyenne on Friday.

Capt. Linda Gesell says the incident occurred around 4:50 p.m. at the Wells Fargo on E. Pershing Boulevard.

Gesell says a man approached a customer while she was making an outside deposit, threw her into the bushes and took her money.

She says the robber -- described as a tall, skinny black man with short hair -- and his getaway driver then fled the scene in a silver Chevrolet Malibu with temporary Colorado tags.

Gesell is asking anyone with information about the robbery to call Sgt. Burch at (307) 633-4763.
