CARLSBAD, Calif. — A gun-toting masked man in business attire robbed a North County bank Monday morning.

The thief, who appeared to be in his mid-30s, entered the Silvergate Bank office in the 5800 block of El Camino Real in Carlsbad shortly before 10 a.m. with a black pistol in his hand and ordered everyone inside to get on the floor, according to the FBI. He then demanded cash from two tellers and fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Witnesses described the bandit as a bearded, athletic-looking, roughly 6-foot black man with a bald head. He was carrying an attached case with a shoulder strap and wearing dark-colored slacks, a white dress shirt, a striped tie and a black glove on his left hand.

The robber pulled some type of fabric over the lower part of his face before entering the bank, authorities said.

  • Catch that fool!

    Was he a nig or a mex? Got to know, so we can catch this fool! Please report the entire description and cut the politically correct crap fox news 5! The public deserves the right to know what ethnicity the robber is!

      You idiot. He is described in the article as a black man, not a "nig". Guess your reading comprehension isn't too good. And what do you mean "so WE can catch this fool"? Why does the public need to know the ethnicity? So you can make idiotic comments?

      • It's all good!

        tato,

        You are the idiot with a name like that (tato)! LOL!

        This guy is both a nig and a mex. You know tato, a latino, maybe a cubano oe even an islander!
        As for your narrow minded comment of why does the public need to know what creed they are.

        It's simple dip $hit, you can identify them with a complete description and then, either hunt the scum bag down like the dog he is or see him on the street and notify the po po!

        With the way you think tattoo, may you have a gun shoved into your face so that you can poop your pants. Then you will understand the importance of a thorough description and how important it is to give the public basic information, that might help in this robbers capture.
