A man was robbed after leaving a bank in Salinas on Friday, police said. The robbery was reported at 11:48 a.m. Friday in the 1400 block of Constitution Boulevard and occurred after the 40-year-old victim went to a bank on South Main Street to cash a check, according to police. The victim then went back in his car and drove to Constitution Boulevard. Once he stopped his vehicle, two suspects approached while he was still in the driver’s seat of the car and began punching him repeatedly and demanding his money, police said.
The suspects ended up taking less than $100 from the victim, who suffered moderate injuries in the attack, police said. The suspects, Hispanic men in their late 20s or early 30s, got back into a silver-colored vehicle and fled. Police believe the suspects saw the victim counting his cash as he exited the bank and followed him.
