ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a man they believe carjacked a woman then robbed a bank Friday afternoon.

The man left in the victim's 2010 gray Toyota Camry, and was seen heading south on 66th Street, police said.

About 10 minutes later, officers got a call about a robbery at Wells Fargo Bank, 3131 66th St. N. Officials said a masked man entered the bank and demanded cash, then left the scene in a gray Camry.
