San Francisco police are looking for one bad Santa.

A man dressed up as Santa Claus robbed a bank near the intersection of Sutter and Stockton on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The Santa, described as 40-50 years old, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, handed the teller a note and then walked out with cash.

Police say the robber did not look unusual because the robbery happened at the same time as SantaCon, the annual event in which hundreds of people dressed as Santa swarm Union Square.

SFPD provided surveillance images to the media Thursday.

No arrests have been made and anyone with information about the suspect is urged to contact San Francisco police and may do so anonymously by calling (415) 392-2623 or may text a tip to 847411 with "SFPD" in the text field followed by the message.
