San Leandro police are investigating an armed robbery at an
outdoor ATM machine from Friday morning, police said.
A man who was using an ATM machine at a Wells Fargo Bank in the
1800 block of Marina Boulevard around 5 a.m. was approached by a person with
a firearm who robbed the man and fled the area with an undisclosed amount of
money, according to police.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s wearing a
dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over partially covering
his face, police said.
Detectives are working with bank security agents and area
businesses to attain video surveillance footage to identify the suspect,
"We want to remind everyone to always be aware of their
surroundings, especially while using ATM machines. We recommend the use of
outdoor ATM machines during daylight hours if possible, or when the area has
others around, as this generally deters crimes like this," Lt. Robert McManus
said in a statement.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the San
Leandro Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division at (510)
577-3230 or leave an anonymous tip at (510) 577-3278.
