Man robs bank in Rowland Heights

A man escaped with about $1,000 after using a note to rob a bank branch Wednesday, authorities said.

The crime was reported about 10:30 a.m. at the Bank of the West, 19005 Colima Road, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Joe Chavez said.

The robber handed a teller a note demanding cash and was last seen fleeing north from the bank on foot, officials said.

He was described as a white man in his mid-30s, with blond hair and blue eyes, about 6 feet 3 inches tall and 185 pounds, wearing a tan jacket over a blue hooded sweat shirt, Chavez said. He was unshaven.

The Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau, as well as the FBI, were assisting in the investigation.
