The thief handed a demand note to a teller at the US Bank branch office in the 600 block of West Washington Street about 9 a.m., according to San Diego police. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.
Witnesses described the bandit as a man in his 20s with a goatee, about 6 feet tall, with a halting gait and an apparent injury to his right eye. He was wearing dark-colored clothing, including a black hat with white logos on both sides, and was carrying a duffel bag.
