Police seek downtown bank robbery suspect

Police are asking the public to help identify a man suspected of robbing a Bank of America branch on Castro Street Tuesday.

At 2:36 p.m. the man allegedly robbed the downtown Mountain View bank without a weapon, and escaped with $1,300 in cash. Police are not releasing further details on how the robbery was conducted, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department.

The man was described as a white male with a dark tan on his face, neck and arms, and a body odor that indicated he had not bathed for a while. He was wearing a tan shirt over a black shirt, thick-framed glasses and a "Callaway" baseball cap, as well as construction-style boots and faded blue jeans, according to police. He was also seen carrying a blue bag that he used to stash the stolen cash.

Mountain View police are asking people who have information about the case to call them at 650-903-6395. Anonymous tips may also be sent via text to 274637 -- include 'mvtips' in the body of the message.
