The FBI and San Diego Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance to identify the unknown man (left) responsible for robbing the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 7875 Highlands Village Place (Torrey Highlands) in San Diego, California, on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012.

On Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012, at approximately 1:25 p.m., the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 7875 Highlands Village Place in San Diego, California, was robbed by an unknown man using a demand note. The unknown male, hereinafter referred to as the robber, also threatened to have a weapon. After receiving a sum of money, the robber walked out of the bank. Once outside of the bank a witness observed an individual matching the robber’s description running towards a Gray Dodge Charger and yelling at the driver to “go.” The vehicle was described as a newer Dodge Charger with paper plates. No injuries were reported. It is possible the robber wore make-up to conceal his identity.
