A U.S. bank branch in San Leandro has been robbed for the second time in five days, according to police. Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at the bank, located at 1585 E. 14th St, at about 9:25 a.m. on Friday, according to the San Leandro Police Department. Bank employees told officers that a black man between 20 to 30 years old approached a teller window, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money.
The teller complied by handing over an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber moved to a second teller window, police said. The suspect did not get any money from the second teller and fled the area on foot, police said. He was wearing a gray hoodie, according to witnesses.
The bank was hit by another robbery on Dec. 30. In that crime, a white man in his mid-20s to early 30s had walked into the branch and presented a note demanding money to one of the tellers, police said. The teller complied and the suspect left without brandishing or simulating a weapon.
