A man armed with a pistol robbed a Hillcrest bank Friday, authorities reported.
The thief confronted a teller at the California Bank & Trust branch office in the 3700 block of Fifth Avenue in San Diego about 9:15 a.m., displayed the handgun and demanded cash, according to the FBI.
After the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of money, the bandit, who was carrying a black backpack, walked out of the bank and fled the area on foot.
The robber was described as a thin, roughly 6-foot black man in dark- colored sweatpants, a white undershirt, a black long-sleeved hooded sweatshirt, a light-colored cloth hat with a drawstring and sunglasses.
