SAN DIEGO - Authorities asked the public Wednesday for help in identifying a thin, mostly toothless man who robbed a downtown bank while claiming to have a concealed pistol.
The thief, who appeared to be 50 to 60 years old, handed a demand note to a teller at the Wells Fargo branch office in the 600 block of First Avenue in San Diego about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday, the FBI reported. The written message included a statement that he had a gun, though none was seen, according to the federal agency.
The man fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Witnesses described the bandit as a slim, roughly 6-foot black man with gray hair on the sides of his head, similarly colored facial stubble and a single visible tooth that appeared brown and "rotted," according to the FBI.
He was wearing dark-colored pants, a T-shirt and a baseball cap.
