CHULA VISTA (CNS) - The FBI and police sought the public's help Saturday to identify a heavy-set man who tried to rob a Chula Vista credit union but left empty-handed.
The suspect entered the North Island Credit Union at 45 Broadway, at approximately 12:20 p.m., Wednesday, and walked up to a teller's window, according to FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth.
When asked if he needed help, the man said he would be right back and left.
The man returned a short time later and once again entered the teller line, Foxworth said. Upon arrival at the window, he held up a small white piece of paper demanding money in certain denominations.
The teller questioned the man's intent and he replied with a verbal demand, Foxworth said. The teller walked away from the window and the would-be robber ran out the emergency exit, empty-handed.
The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic man in his late 40s or early 50s, about 5 feet-4 inches to 5 feet-6 inches tall with a medium build and a potbelly. He had gray curly hair and was possibly balding with a gray mustache and a weathered face. He wore a dark blue Chargers baseball cap, a dingy tan or white t-shirt with a large screen on the right side, dark colored pants and black boots.
The FBI asked anyone with information about the suspect to contact them at (858) 565-1255, or to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
