GLENDALE — For the second time in as many days, a man dodged police Wednesday as they responded to calls that he robbed a downtown bank. The only difference the second time was he made off with cash.
The robbery occurred at the U.S. Bank in the 600 block of North Brand Boulevard about 2:15 p.m. when the man passed the teller a note that said “It’s a robbery” and fled through the back door with cash, officials said.
No injuries were reported.
An FBI spokeswoman described the suspect as a Filipino man in his late 40s, 5 feet 2 to 5 feet 5, with short black hair, a medium build and wearing a black T-shirt and sunglasses.
U.S Bank representatives declined to comment and referred inquiries to police.
On Tuesday, a man attempted to rob the Citibank down the street after a taxi dropped him off. That attempt failed and fled out the back exit, but police were unable to track him down.
