San Diego Police sought Wednesday a man who robbed a bank inside a Midway-area grocery store after threatening to harm the teller.
The suspect passed a note demanding cash in specific denominations to a teller at the U.S. Bank branch in the Vons store on Midway Drive near Kemper Street around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth.
The note was written on a deposit slip and stated the suspect would shoot the teller if he was not given cash, Foxworth said. He said the suspect then threatened the suspect out loud, saying he would open fire if he didn’t get all the teller’s money.
The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber ran off, Foxworth said.
Witnesses described the suspect as black or Hispanic, in his late 40s to early 50s, about 5-foot-7 and 250 pounds, with a heavy build. He was wearing a green long-sleeved shirt, khaki shorts and sunglasses with white plastic frames.
Anyone with information on the robbery was asked to call the FBI at (858) 320-1800 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
