Would-be bank robber flees empty-handed in West Covina

WEST COVINA — A man tried to rob a bank branch Friday, but apparently got spooked and fled empty-handed, police said.
The crime took place just after 9 a.m. at a Bank of America branch in the Eastland Shopping Center, 2901 Eastland Center Drive, West Covina police Lt. Richard Bell said.
A man entered the bank and handed a demand note to a teller, the lieutenant said.
The teller did not respond, he said, and the robber seemingly became nervous and fled the bank without any money.
He was last seen heading north from the bank on foot.
Police described the would-be robber as a bearded Latino man of slightly heavy build, wearing a dark shirt, blue jeans, a baseball cap and multicolored gloves.
