Search for suspect who robbed Chase Bank

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man used a threatening demand note to rob a Miramar Ranch-area bank, and the FBI and San Diego police sought the public's help Saturday to identify the suspect.

The suspect waited in line until he was called to the window, then passed the written message to a teller inside the Chase branch on the 10500 block of Scripps Poway Parkway shortly after 5 p.m. Friday, according to FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth.

The note demanded cash and threatened the teller with "serious bodily injury," Foxworth said.

The robber also demanded cash from another teller working from an adjacent window, Foxworth said.

The bandit received money from both tellers and ran off, last seen headed south behind some area businesses, Foxworth said.

The suspect was described as black, about 25 years old, around 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds with a thin build. He had dark hair with a mustache and a beard. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the letters "CAJU," a black baseball cap, dark sunglasses, white tennis shoes, gray sweatpants and a white towel over his shoulder.

Foxworth asked anyone with information on the robbery to contact the FBI at (858) 565-1255, or call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
