A young man in a hooded jacket robbed two San Diego banks Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

The thief, who appeared to be in his early 20s, handed a demand note to a U.S. Bank teller at the Vons store in the 6100 block of El Cajon Boulevard about 1:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.

He then went to the California Coast Credit Union in the 8000 block of La Mesa Boulevard around 2 p.m. and handed a demand note to a teller there, the FBI said.

The bandit fled both banks on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was described as a roughly 6-foot-tall Latino in jeans and a black jacket, Officer Dan Lasher said.

FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said they believe the man is also responsible for robbing these same two banks on February 25 of this year.

Anyone with information concerning any of these robberies is asked to contact the FBI at (858) 320-1800 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
