Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A curly-haired man who appeared to be in his early to mid-20s and claimed to have a concealed pistol robbed a downtown bank Tuesday.

The thief handed a demand note to a teller at the HSBC Bank branch in the 200 block of Broadway about 11:30 a.m., according to the FBI. He told the the teller he had a gun and motioned to his waistband, but the teller did not see a weapon.

After the employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber walked out of the bank and fled in an unknown direction.

The bandit was described as a roughly 5-foot-10-inch, 180-pound man with black hair and thick eyebrows, wearing dark-colored dress slacks, brown shoes and a gray long-sleeved shirt over a white undershirt.
