Bank robbery reported in Alhambra

ALHAMBRA — Three robbers escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash following a takeover-style robbery Friday at an Alhambra bank, police said.
The crime occurred about 10:10 a.m. at the East West Bank, 1211 E. Valley Blvd., Alhambra police Lt. Jennifer Wiese said.
The robbers were described as three black men in their late 20s or early 30s, police said. They were between 5 feet 10 inches tall and 6 feet tall and wore ski masks.
At least two of the robbers were armed, Sgt. Joe Flannagan said. One had a shotgun and another had a handgun.
“The suspects entered the bank, approached the teller and demanded currency,” Wiese said.
The robbers were “very rude” and pushed customers and pushed people around inside the bank, he added.
In addition to at least one teller, the robbers also helped themselves to an unknown amount of cash in the bank’s vault, Flannagan said.
No getaway car was seen, police said, and no one at the bank was injured in the robbery.
Police were looking into the possibility that Friday’s robbery was the work of a group of violent serial bank robbers dubbed “The 20 Questions Bandits” by the FBI, Flannagan said, but it was too early in the investigation to know for certain.
The team of bandits is believed to be responsible for at least 10 bank robberies throughout Southern California. The FBI has offered a $100,000 reward for his arrest.
