Police looking for female suspect in failed bank robbery attempt

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman who claimed to be carrying a concealed weapon made a failed attempt to rob a Gaslamp District bank Monday.

The thief, who appeared to be in her late 30s or early 40s, handed a demand note to a teller at the Bank of America branch office in the 400 block of Island Avenue in downtown San Diego shortly after 9 a.m., according to the FBI.

After looking at the written message, in which the bandit claimed to have some sort of weapon, the clerk notified a co-worker, and both walked away without turning over any cash. The would-be robber then left the bank.

Witnesses described her as a roughly 5-foot-5-inch, 140-pound Filipina wearing brown pants, a green blouse, a green sweater with horizontal white stripes, black shoes and black sunglasses.
