WELLINGTON -- The FBI says the Sun Center Federal Credit Union in Wellington was robbed at gunpoint on Tuesday.

FBI said the credit union at 805 Patriot Drive was robbed by a man at approximately 3:36 p.m. on Tuesday.

He was described as  approximately 5'6" in height.

He was wearing a grey, hooded sweatshirt, faded blue jean pants, black gloves, black shoes and a wintery type scarf around his face, possibly red or purple in color, and only his eyes were showing at the time of the robbery.

A bluish/green/gray tattoo on his forearm was seen by a witness exiting the credit union prior to the robbery.

The man entered the credit union, displayed a handgun and ordered the first teller to place money from her teller drawer into a white garbage bag with a red tie.

The teller complied and the man instructed the second teller to place money into the same bag.

After the teller did so, he ordered both tellers verbally and by pointing the gun at them to proceed to the back room of the building and close the door.

Once the back room door was closed, he left the building.

No one was injured and it is believed he left the credit union by foot, traveled through a wooded area, and entered a getaway vehicle.

It is not known at this time if the vehicle was driven by him or someone else.

Reward money is available for the successful identification and prosecution of the man responsible for this robbery.

Any information should be provided to the FBI at 216-522-1400. Tips can remain anonymous.
