A man walked into a Santa Rosa bank Saturday afternoon with a piece of clothing covering his face and robbed it at gunpoint, police said.
No one was injured in the 3:44 p.m. holdup at the Chase Bank branch at Guerneville Road and Range Avenue, according to Santa Rosa police.
When a bank employee told the man to take the clothing off his face before approaching the teller area, the man pulled a black handgun from a paper bag, pointed it at the employee and demanded cash, police said in a news release. After being given an undisclosed amount, police said the man took off on foot southbound.
The man was described as white, about 30 years old, 5-feet-7-inches, with a thin build. He was wearing a dark baseball cap with a yellow brim and a design on its front, a black hooded sweatshirt or jacket with designs on the back and the front left side, police said.
Anyone with additional information is urged to contact Detective Vaughn Andrews of the violent crimes investigation team at 707-543-3590.
