Police seeking suspect in Horton Plaza bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man wearing sunglasses and a camouflage jacket pretended to have a concealed pistol Wednesday while robbing a Horton Plaza bank.

The thief approached a teller at the Citibank branch office on Broadway Circle in downtown San Diego shortly after 10 a.m., "simulated" a gun in his pocket and demanded cash, according to police.

After the employee handed over an undisclosed amount of money, the bandit, who had the hood of the military-style coat zipped up over his head and face, fled into the adjacent shopping mall.

Witnesses described him as about 6 feet 2 inches tall and in his 30s. No weapon was seen during the crime, police said.
