Man in his 70s robs Bank of America in La Jolla

Posted: Updated:

FBI agents are trying to figure out whether a senior who held up a bank in La Jolla is behind a series of other robberies.

San Diego police say a man in his 70's robbed this Bank of America branch Monday night. He approached a teller as if he was going to make a deposit. Instead he gave a demand note and showed the teller a gun.

Police say they want to get him off the streets fast.

"In this case he's showing a gun and that's very frightening and it's dangerous for the anybody he might encounter and it's dangerous for the police officers who are responding,” Lieutenant Dan Christman with the San Diego Police Department.

No one was hurt.

Police say the man might be behind a string of other robberies across the county.
