BALDWIN PARK — A man was robbed of an envelope full of cash after leaving a bank Thursday, officials said.
A man had just withdrawn a significant amount of money about 10:15 a.m. from Chase Bank, 14483 East Ramona Boulevard, and was getting into his car in the parking lot when he was approached by a robber, Baldwin Park police Sgt. Mark Harvey said.
As the victim was getting into his car, the suspect reached over the car door and snatched an envelope full of money the victim had placed in his shirt pocket, the sergeant said.
The robber took the money and ran to a nearby car with a waiting driver, which sped away, police said.
Officials described the man who grabbed the money as Latino, 19-20 years old and with light brown hair. He wore a light blue T-shirt and blue jeans.
The driver was described only as wearing thick, black glasses.
Anyone with information was asked to call Baldwin Park police at 626-960-1955.
