Police: well-dressed elderly man robs bank

Submitted By AP Wire Service

LA JOLLA, Calif. (AP), Sep 12 _ Authorities say a well-dressed elderly man carrying an oxygen tank has robbed a La Jolla bank.

San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick says the suspect presented a demand note to a teller at the San Diego National Bank Saturday. He fled with an unknown amount of cash.

Battrick says it's unclear whether the suspect had a weapon.

The robber is described as a tall man in his 70s with white hair, a gray mustache and glasses. He was wearing a white beret, argyle sweater and brown sports jacket.

Battrick says the oxygen tank was in a black bag and connected to the man's nose with plastic tubing.
