Public's help sought in identifying bank robbery suspect

 

Police in Mountain View are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in a bank robbery earlier this month.

Officers responded at 2:20 p.m. on Jan. 8 to the California Bank and Trust in the 700 block of West El Camino Real.

Police said the suspect entered the bank and demanded money. The bank teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash and the man then walked out of the bank.

He was last seen walking toward View Street.

The suspect is described as a black man who is 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slender to medium build. He was wearing a black beanie with neon yellow and white writing, a black jacket that had a zipper on the right front side of the shoulder, blue jeans and white shoes. He was also wearing sunglasses.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the Mountain View Police Department at 650- 903-6624.

"He was last seen walking toward View Street." What, are criminals now trying to be environmentally friendly?
