The FBI is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect responsible for a bank robbery at US Bank in Burbank and Wells Fargo in South Pasadena.
On May 15, 2017, afternoon about 4:20 PM a man entered the US Bank located at 1750 W. Olive Ave. in Burbank, CA. He approached a bank teller and passed a note demanding money, threatening to harm people inside the bank if his demands do not meet.
Fearing for his safety and the safety of the customers and other employees of the bank, the teller provided the suspect with the cash that he asked. The suspect then exited the bank and possibly entered a Ford Flex parked nearby at the branch.
About 45 minutes later, the same person committed a bank robbery in Wells Fargo within the city of South Pasadena, CA (1000 Fair Oaks Avenue). He again produced a demand note to a teller and stole cash from the bank.
The suspect is described as a middle age male, possibly Armenian. Roughly 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds. The bank robber was wearing a gray baseball cap, aviator-style sunglasses and a white strip along the brim.
At the time these bank robberies were committed, the suspect had facial hair. The Ford Flex, which is believed to be the suspect’s vehicle, is black with a silver top. It also has a moonroof and aluminum paneling on the tailgate.
At this moment, the total monetary loss not being disclosed. Anybody with information about these robberies, or information that might help and identify this suspect is asked to call the Burbank Police Detective Bureau, at 818-238-3210.
