NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk police are seeking a man who robbed the Hudson United Bank on Westport Avenue at gunpoint Saturday and fled on a bicycle.

Officers were called to the bank at 12:19 a.m. Saturday on the report of a robbery, police said. The suspect was described as a thin white man between 5 foot, 6 inches and 5 foot, 8 inches tall. He was wearing a gray jacket with a white shirt underneath and a black ski mask, police said.

The man displayed a black semi-automatic handgun during the robbery, possibly a .45-caliber, police said. After leaving the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled on a black BMX-style bicycle, police said.
