Police in Antioch are searching for a man who tried to rob a Wells Fargo bank on Wednesday but fled the scene before he could finish the job. The man entered the bank at 1715 A St. around 5:40 p.m. Wednesday and handed a teller a note demanding cash, according to police.
The suspect fled the bank after the teller alerted co-workers to the robbery attempt. Police said the man ran into a surrounding residential neighborhood and started hopping fences. Officers spotted a man who fit the suspect description but he jumped a fence and fled the area before they could reach him, police said. Police continued to search the area with canines in tow and via helicopter, but were unable to find the man.
The suspect is described as a black man in his mid-20s who is roughly 5 feet seven inches tall with a medium build. Surveillance footage shows the suspect with a one to two-inch afro-style haircut and some facial hair, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and sunglasses.
