Man sought in Midway area bank robbery

SAN DIEGO - The FBI Sunday released photos of a man with some unique facial tattoos, whom they believe robbed a bank in the Midway District.

It was 10:45 a.m. Saturday when the suspect entered the Union Bank branch, at 3261 Sports Arena Blvd., approached the teller and made a verbal demand for money, FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said. The suspect demanded specific denominations and threatened violence if the teller did not comply with his demands.

After the teller complied with the suspect's demands, the suspect walked out of the bank and towards the nearby Target store, Foxworth said. No injuries were reported during the robbery.
