SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Deputies are asking the public for help in identifying a man accused of trying to rob a woman outside a North County bank.
Investigators say it happened on May 4 as the woman was trying to withdraw money from an ATM at the Wells Fargo on West San Marcos Boulevard. A man reportedly came up to the woman and demanded money while motioning to a concealed beverage bottle on the right side of his jacket, which police say made it appear he had a weapon.
Deputies say the woman feared for her life and drove off as a nearby surveillance camera captured footage of the suspect. He’s described as a white or Hispanic man between 20-25 years old who is believed to be 5-feet 9-inches to 5-feet 11-inches tall and weigh 150-160 pounds.
The man was wearing a black cap with an orange “SF” logo, a black hooded jacket with a “True Religion” logo on the back, blue jeans, white Nike Air Force One sneakers and a black “MCM” backpack, according to investigators.
San Diego County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the man’s arrest. Anyone with information about his identity or location is asked to call the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station at 760-510-5200. You can also call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
