La Mirada bank robbed for second time this month

LA MIRADA — A La Mirada bank was robbed for the second time this month Friday, and authorities said they suspect the crimes may be related.
A man armed with a knife escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash about 2 p.m. after robbing the Bank of the West at Imperial Boulevard and Valley View Avenue, sheriff’s Lt. Steve Kenny said.
The same bank was also robbed April 2 by a robber with a similar description, he added.
“(Investigators) believe it may be related,” Kenny said.
In Friday’s robbery, a Latino man in his mid-20s entered the bank with a bandana covering his face, brandished a knife and demanded money from a teller, the lieutenant said.
Kenny said deputies were retrieving images of the robber from bank surveillance cameras late Friday.
In the April 2 heist, a masked man with a similar description robbed the same bank branch about 9 a.m., Lt. Mark Wilkins said.
