SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Authorities reached out to the public Thursday for help in identifying a man who carried out a St. Patrick’s Day robbery at a banking desk inside a Vons supermarket in Miramar Ranch North.

The thief, who appeared to be in his mid-20s, handed a demand note to a teller at the Wells Fargo satellite office in the 10600 block of Scripps Poway Parkway in northern San Diego about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to the FBI.

After the clerk gave him an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber left the store and fled the area on foot. He was described as a roughly 5-foot- 8-inch man wearing dark-colored pants, a black knit cap, a light-blue paper face mask and a green hooded sweatshirt with the cowl pulled up over his head.
