KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Police are searching for a suspect accused of robbing a credit union inside the University Center, leaving behind a suspicious box.

FBI agents say a man walked into the UT Federal Credit Union, 1502 Cumberland Avenue, around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The suspect placed a package on the counter, claimed it was a bomb, and demanded money from employees.

After taking an unknown amount of money, the suspect ran east on Cumberland Avenue.

The suspect is described as a black male, in his late 40s or early 50s, weighing 180 to 190 pounds, and standing around 6 feet tall.

He was wearing white medical scrubs with a gray striped polo underneath, a black ball cap, and one blue latex glove.


"He was sneezing and carrying on in that manner so they thought maybe he had allergies and that's why he had the mask on,"Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said.

Raush said the suspect's disguise did not seem out of the ordinary.

"It doesn't surprise me in these types of incidents folks will do whatever they can do hide their identity," Raush said.


The University Center was evacuated for a time, but was reopened around 1 p.m.

The FBI and UT Police are assisting the Knoxville Police Department with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Knoxville FBI at (865) 544-0751, the UT Police Department at (865) 974-3114, or the Knoxville Police Department at (865) 215-7212.

They also didn't send out the text alerts til 20 or 30 minutes or so after it happened. My daughter was so much in her own little world there, she didn't even know it until I saw it on UT's facebook page and told her about it.
