SORRENTO VALLEY (CNS) - Police today are looking for a young man who pretended to have a handgun while robbing a Sorrento Valley bank branch.
The man entered a Chase bank at 9450 Scranton Rd. just after 4:45 p.m. Friday, walked straight to a teller's station and said, "You know what this is," according to FBI Agent Darrell Foxworth.
The suspect then put his right hand inside his jacket pocket to simulate a gun and handed the teller a note that said he had a weapon, Foxworth said.
The man was given money and then fled, said Officer David Stafford of the San Diego Police Department.
He is described as being black, in his 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed between 180 to 190 pounds. He was wearing a black hat, black leather jacket, black pants and had a black bandana over his face.
The bank is in a small outdoor shopping complex near Interstate 805.
