A “petite” girl described as being in her late teens made off with an undisclosed amount of money Thursday morning after robbing the Community Bank on 100 N. Brand Blvd., authorities said.

The girl, who was wearing a light gray sweater and a shoulder-tie purse, entered the bank about 10:05 a.m. Thursday and initially asked for change, said FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho. The girl then slipped a note to the teller that said, “Give me your large, no exploding money, no cops.”

The teen was last seen walking toward a parking garage on Maryland Avenue, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

No weapons were seen during the robbery, and no injuries were reported, authorities said.

The teen had a fair complexion with red, shoulder-length hair and bangs, Arocho said.

The bank reopened shortly after closing to allow investigators access to the scene, Community Bank Director of Operations Debby Hart said.


She declined to say how much money was stolen.

Anyone with information on the suspect may call the FBI at (888) 226-8443.
