A man who tried to rob the Union Bank in Mill Valley Tuesday evening also is suspected of robbing a bank in Greenbrae on Jan. 9, a Marin County sheriff’s lieutenant said. The suspect entered the Union Bank at 800 Old Redwood Highway in the Strawberry Village Shopping Center around 5:40 p.m., Lt. Jamie Scardina said. He gave the teller a note demanding money but fled without any cash after several minutes. Neither a weapon or a vehicle was seen and no one was injured, Scardina said. The suspect is a white male, 40-50 years old with a medium build, blond hair, light colored eyes and light facial hair, Scardina said. He was wearing a brown knit cap with earflaps, a green jacket, black leather gloves and dark pants.

The white male suspect who entered the Union Bank near the Bon Air Center at 575 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in Greenbrae around 5:40 p.m. on Jan. 9 had blond hair, green eyes and scruffy facial hair. He was wearing a gray beanie with a design and black clothing. The robber left with cash in a messenger or laptop-size bag, Central Marin Police Authority Sgt. Julie Gorwood said. The sheriff’s office released a photo of the Greenbrae bank robbery suspect on its website.
