Details scarce about suspect who robbed bank Friday
August 26, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A suspect robbed a downtown Palo Alto bank Friday afternoon and police have few details about who got away with the stolen money.

The suspect entered the Chase Bank in the 300 block of Hamilton Avenue around 5:40 p.m., police said.

The suspect gave the teller a note demanding money. The note said the suspect had a firearm, although a weapon was never seen, police said.

The teller complied and the suspect left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

The suspect was last seen walking onto Bryant Street. No suspect vehicles were seen, police said.

No one was injured in the robbery.

Witnesses were unable to provide a detailed description of the suspect who was either a male or female of an unknown race and age, police said.

The suspect was only described as standing about 5 feet 11 inches and weighing about 160 pounds. The person had waist-length brown hair that was described as frizzy.

The robber was wearing a black shirt, khaki pants and a black baseball hat while carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call Palo Alto police at 329-2413. Anonymous tips can be sent to or via text or voicemail to 383-8984.
