Police Saturday searched for a man suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank branch inside a supermarket in the North Clairemont neighborhood.

At 2 p.m., the suspect entered the bank located inside a Vons store at 4725 Clairemont Drive and demanded money from a teller -- but did not show a weapon, San Diego police said. The man was given an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the scene, police said.

The suspect is described as being in his late 20s to early 30s, with a thin build, blond hair and "big ears." He wore a black T-shirt with a "Star Wars" theme and dark-colored pants.

The San Diego Police Department's Robbery Unit is investigating the incident.
