A middle-aged black man who robbed a Burbank Citibank Saturday appears to match the description of a suspect wanted in connection with a nearby bank robbery this summer, authorities said.
The suspect, who witnesses described as being between 45 and 50 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 150 pounds, walked into the Citibank at 360 E. Magnolia Blvd., handed the teller a note demanding cash and said he had a gun, Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada said. The suspect then made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The incident closely mirrored the robbery of a downtown Chase Bank Aug. 20 in which the suspect handed over a similar note before being chased across the street by bank security into the Islands Restaurant parking lot at 101 E. Orange Grove Ave., where he was last seen.
