A man who appeared to be in his 30s robbed the North Island Credit Union in Miramar Ranch North, a police officer said Saturday.

The robbery took place shortly before 5 p.m. Friday, at 10549 Scripps Poway Parkway, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.

The robber waited in line at the bank and gave a teller a note demanding money, Heims said. The teller handed over an unknown amount of cash and the suspect left the credit union. He may have fled in a silver or gray mid-sized sedan with five-spoke wheels, Heims added.

The suspect was described as white, standing between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall. He had a slender build and weighed about 180 pounds, Heims continued.

He had dark brown hair and eyes and a full, dark brown beard. He was last seen wearing a three-quarter length coat, a maroon scarf, dark blue jeans, a black baseball cap and dress shoes.

Anyone with information on this suspect was asked to call the San Diego police at (619) 531-2000 or 911. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
