A man described as being 70 to 80 years old is suspected of robbing the La Jolla branch of San Diego National Bank on Saturday, September 12.
Clad in a beige-and-black-checkered blazer and wearing a black-white-and-beige-checkered golf hat, the man walked into the Ivanhoe Avenue bank branch at approximately 10:10 a.m. He approached a teller station and handed the teller a note demanding money.
Upon receiving a sum of money, the man escaped on foot. The robber was wearing an oxygen tank in an over-the-shoulder bag and had an oxygen tube affixed to his nose. The suspect is white, 6’4” tall, medium build, with liver spots on his skin. He wore a light-colored shirt and slacks as well as prescription eyeglasses.
“It’s very unusual,” says FBI special agent Darrell Foxworth. “I think it’s the first time this year we’ve had a suspect 70 to 80 years old.”
