FBI: Man robs SD area bank in motorcycle helmet

Posted: Updated:

ALPINE, Calif. (AP) — The FBI is trying to identify a bank robber who wore a motorcycle crash helmet during a heist in an eastern San Diego County bank and then escaped on a bicycle.

FBI agents say the robber entered the California Bank and Trust in Alpine on Monday and yelled for the staff to give him the money.

Agents say he lifted his shirt as if to show a gun, but no one saw a weapon.

When the teller did not move fast enough, he slammed his fist on the counter and grabbed money from the drawer. He fled on a red BMX-type bicycle.

Officials say the man is 17 to 25 years old and was wearing a full-face crash helmet and a bandana to cover his face.
