A diminutive man in sunglasses robbed a North County supermarket banking desk Friday, authorities reported.
The thief, who appeared to be in his early 30s, handed a demand note to a teller at the U.S. Bank office at the Albertsons store in the 1100 block of South Mission Road in Fallbrook shortly after 10 a.m., according to the FBI.
The so-called "Hipster Bandit" fled with an undisclosed amount of money. Witnesses described him as a roughly 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound white man with short brown hair, freckles and protruding ears.
The same man is believed to have also robbed a U.S. Bank branch in an Albertsons store on Fletcher Parkway in La Mesa in early July, the FBI reported.
