PORTLAND, Maine — Portland police are looking for an armed man who robbed a city credit union.

Police say the man entered the University Credit Union just after 4 p.m. on Thursday with a gun, demanded cash from a teller, and fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

There were several customers and employees inside at the time, but no one was hurt.

The thief was described as a white male wearing a dark South Pole sweat shirt with the hood up. He also appeared to be wearing a ski mask.

Police are investigating whether the credit union robbery is connected to a convenience store robbery Wednesday.

It’s the second time the credit union has been robbed in the past month. Two teenage boys were arrested in connection with a Dec. 21 robbery.
