FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A robber dressed in a sweat suit as the superhero character Iron Man is being sought for an armed heist at a South Florida blood bank.

The Broward Sheriff's Office this week released video of the March 3 stickup at Continental Services Group located at 2901 West Broward Blvd.

Investigators told the SunSentinel the man wore a red Iron Man sweat suit with a hood that zipped up into a mask, a black T-shirt over the sweat suit and dark colored pants.

Authorities say the man pushed aside a customer, pointed a gun at a clerk and demanded money. The clerk gave him a cash box and the man ran away with it. The amount of money taken has not been disclosed.

No one was injured in the heist.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Robbery Det. Mark Copley at 954-321-4738.
