Deputies investigate robbery at Woodside bank
February 17, 2017, 05:00 AM

A robber brandished a handgun and stole cash from a bank in Woodside on Tuesday, San Mateo County sheriff’s officials said.

At 2:55 p.m., a man entered the Chase Bank located at 2977 Woodside Road and approached bank tellers. He allegedly took out a small black metal handgun and demanded money, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash and placed it inside a black plastic garbage bag, then walked out of the bank and headed east on Woodside Road, sheriff’s officials said. No one was injured during the robbery.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and searched the area but did not locate the suspect, who is described as a clean-shaven white male wearing a white beanie hat, dark sunglasses, a red hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and dark shoes.

Sheriff’s officials have released surveillance photos of the suspect and are asking for help in identifying him. Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact sheriff’s Detective Jonathan Sebring at (650) 363-4057 or Jsebring@smcgov.org. Anonymous tips can be called to a tip line at (800) 547-2700.
