SAN DIEGO — A man in sunglasses used a demand note Friday to rob a Clairemont Mesa bank.

The thief, who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s, handed the written message to a clerk at the US Bank office in the 4100 block of Genesee Avenue shortly before noon, according to San Diego police.

After the teller turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, the bandit walked out of the bank and drove off in a late-model blue or gray car.

He was described as a “scruffy,” roughly 5-foot-6-inch white man with short black hair and a mole on his left cheek, SDPD Officer Frank Cali said.The robber was wearing faded blue jeans, a black nylon jacket, a black baseball cap and dark glasses.
