OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities are searching for a man who allegedly robbed a credit union that is located on State Capitol grounds.

Around 1 p.m., the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a mixed-race man robbed the Credit Union inside the Sequoyah building on State Capitol grounds.

The armed suspect was wearing a red hoodie, a black mask and sunglasses, OHP officials say.

The man then reportedly used the tunnel systems to escape the building.

Officials say he was last seen exiting north of the Oklahoma History Center.

Authorities continue to search the area for the suspect.

At this time, it is unclear if any money was taken during the robbery.

The FBI is expected to take over the investigation.
