A man used a demand note to rob a teller Wednesday afternoon at a Chase bank branch in a Clairemont shopping center, according to San Diego-area FBI officials.
The robbery occurred at 3:48 p.m. at the bank in the Balboa Mesa shopping center on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue, according to the FBI.
The robber’s note contained a threat that he was armed with a gun and demanded money from the teller, FBI officials said in a news release. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber was last seen walking out of the bank.
FBI officials described the bandit as a dark-skinned man in his late 20s or early 30s. He stood about 5 feet 4 inches with a skinny build and bald head. He wore a blue face covering, white T-shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the robber was asked to contact the FBI at (800) 225-5324 or tips.fbi.gov. Tipsters can also call San Diego County Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477, or submit anonymous information at sdcrimestoppers.org.
