Lafayette police are searching for a man they said entered the Lafayette Bank of America branch at 3530 Mt. Diablo Blvd. a little after 4 p.m. Tuesday and passed a teller a note demanding money from the till.
Investigators said the suspect, described as a white or Hispanic male, 25 to 35 years of age, 5'10" - 6' tall, with a large mole on his right cheek, was wearing a dark brown long sleeve t-shirt, blue jeans, a red or brown colored baseball cap and sunglasses. No weapon was seen.
It is believed the suspect left the area on foot, Lafayette police said, and additional officers from Orinda and Moraga, along with deputy sheriffs from the Contra Costa Office of the Sheriff, assisted in the search. Officers initially asked that area BART trains be held while a search was conducted, but the suspect was not found.
Anyone with any information regarding the identity of this suspect or on this case is asked to contact the Lafayette Police Department tipline at (925) 299-3230.
