WHITTIER – A man escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash Tuesday after robbing a Bank of America branch, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 4:20 p.m. at the bank located at 15742 Whittier Blvd., in the Whittwood Town Center, Whittier police Lt. Carlos Solorza said.

The robber demanded money from a teller verbally, using profanity and threatening harm if his demands weren’t met, Solorza said. No weapon was seen.

He was described as a Latino man in his 20s or 30s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds, the lieutenant said.

He had a tattoo on the left side of his neck and wore all dark clothing, including dark sunglasses and a baseball cap, he said.

The robber was last seen running east from the bank toward Santa Gertrudes Avenue, Solorza said.

Officials obtained a clear picture of the robber from bank surveillance cameras, Solorza said.
