San Francisco police are seeking a man who recently wore a cowboy hat, a wig, and a fake moustache to rob the Wells Fargo bank in the Castro district.
According to a police summary, the man entered the bank, located at 567 Castro Street, at 4:15 p.m., Friday, June 1, handed a note to the teller, took the money, and fled on foot. Police indicated no weapon was involved. No arrests have been reported.
Officer Albie Esparza, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, said the suspect was wearing a black cowboy hat and black shoes, sunglasses, a black jacket and black pants with pinstripes, a black wig, and a fake moustache. He described the robber as a white man, 35 to 50, 5 feet 11 inches, weighing 200 pounds.
Esparza wouldn’t disclose what the note said or how much money was taken.
Armando Rosales, branch manager of the Wells Fargo, said the person robbed was actually the bank’s service manager, who’s “doing fine.” He said he didn’t have permission to disclose how much money was taken, and he said he hadn’t seen the suspect’s note.
Police usually don’t identify businesses targeted in crimes and listed the bank’s location only as the 500 block of Castro Street.
