Second Bank Robbery in days

Submitted By San Leandro PD

On Friday, January 3, 2014 about 9:25a.m., SLPD officers responded to a bank robbery that occurred at the US Bank, located at 1585 E.14th St. in San Leandro. When they arrived, bank employees reported that an African-American male adult, 20-30 years old approached a teller window and pointed a gun at the teller and demanded money. After getting money from the first teller he attempted to rob a second teller but did not get any money. The suspect fled the area on foot and was not captured.

The suspect was described as wearing a gray hoodie and is considered armed and dangerous.

SLPD Detectives are actively working this case and will also work with the FBI and other local agencies to help identify and capture this suspect. This is the second bank robbery at this bank in four days. On December 30, 2013, at 4:30 p.m., a suspect described as a white male in his mid-20's to early 30's robbed the same bank. That suspect is still outstanding and detectives are actively working that case.

Lt. Mike Sobek said that the San Leandro Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying both suspects. If anyone has information regarding these robberies or the identities of the suspects, please call them at (510) 577-2740.
