Woman robs bank in downtown Menlo Park

 

A woman in her mid-20s robbed Bank of the West in downtown Menlo Park on Tuesday, according to a police report.

At around 12:29 p.m., the woman gave a teller a note demanding money, saying she had a gun, but no weapon was seen, Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said.

The suspect is described as a Pacific Islander female, about 6 feet tall, wearing a red Cincinnati baseball hat, sunglasses, a dark gray or black puffy jacket, gray sweatpants and white/black tennis shoes.

She was last seen on foot leaving through the side door, Acker said.

The bank is at 701 Santa Cruz Ave. at Curtis Street in downtown Menlo Park.

It says she was wearing a red Cincinnati baseball hat. If you're going to rob an establishment, why would you wear distinctive clothing that could put you at the scene of the crime? Never have understood that, but what do I know. I'm just a law-abiding citizen. ; )

It's the year of the woman, she wants recognition, a woman breaking that good ole boys glass ceiling, forging new ground. Maybe she's expecting a statue and a movie deal? ;-)
