A man with what appeared to be a detonating device robbed a bank in downtown San Mateo this afternoon, police said. The robbery was reported at the Wells Fargo bank at 100 E. Fourth Ave. around noon, police said. The man got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller after he handed over a note and wielded what looked like a silver detonating device with a red button, according to police.
The suspect was wearing a white T-shirt with a logo on the pocket and a dark hat with an apparently blond wig with a ponytail.
He was described as a middle-aged man standing about 5 feet 8 inches tall and heavy-set, police said. The suspect left the bank with the money and was last seen walking southbound on South San Mateo Drive toward Central Park.
No one was injured in the robbery and police do not know if the device was real or an imitation. After a search of the area, the robber was not found, police said.
