GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Witnesses to Tuesday night's Hancock Bank robbery couldn't tell police much about the robber, and now we know why. Surveillance photos released Wednesday by Gulfport Police show a masked man covered completely in black.

The bank, located on Pass Road, just west of 15th Avenue, was robbed just before 5pm Tuesday night. The robber was carrying a knife and wearing a black hoodie-style sweatshirt, a black hat and a black mask. He got away with an unknown amount of money.

If you have any information that could help police, call the Gulfport Police Department at (228) 868-5959. You can also contact Crime Stoppers at www.mscoastcrimestoppers.com or by calling 1-877-787-5898. Tips can be sent by texting CSTIP plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES).
