DOWNTOWN: A bald, heavy-set man robbed California Bank & Trust at noon and may have headed to Mission Valley a short time later, San Diego police said.
The robber walked into the bank on B Street near India Street, demanded money from a teller and left, police Sgt. Garry Collins said.
Witnesses described him as white, in his 50s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, up to 300 pounds, with blue eyes, bald and clean-shaven. He wore a black, long-sleeved T-shirt and black jeans and carried a black backpack.
Within 45 minutes, a police helicopter was circling Fashion Valley mall and the Town & Country Hotel at Hotel Circle North, broadcasting the robber's description. No arrest was made.
