Brazen robber targets bank in Poway shopping center

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police and the FBI asked the public for help Saturday in identifying and locating the man who robbed a U.S. Bank branch in an Albertson's Grocery Store in Poway.

The robber entered the Albertson's at 14837 Pomerado Rd. just after 7 p.m. Friday and approached two employees working at the U.S. Bank branch in the store, FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said. The robber made a verbal demand for money and gestured to his waist indicating that he had a weapon, Foxworth said.

The robber was given an undisclosed sum of money, then exited and got into the passenger side of a Chevy S-10 pickup truck, driven by an undescribed getaway driver, Foxworth said.

The robber was described as a white male in his 20s, 5 feet-10 inches tall with a thin to medium build and brown hair. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dark glasses and a red bandana that covered his nose and mouth.

The supermarket bank branch is at Camino del Norte at Pomerado Road.

The FBI asked anyone with information to contact them at (858) 320-1800, or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
