A Wells Fargo Bank was robbed in Danville this afternoon and police say they’re still looking for the man responsible for the crime.

The robbery occurred around 2:20 p.m. in the 3000 block of Camino Tassajara.

The man entered the bank, handed a note demanding money to the teller and fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police.

He was last seen running through the Safeway parking lot at Tassajara Crossing, near the intersection of Camino Tassajara and Crow Canyon and Blackhawk roads.

He’s described as a black man in his mid-to-late 20s with a medium-to-skinny build and a facial deformity around one eye. He was wearing blue jeans, a black-and-white flannel shirt and a black beanie.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity or whereabouts is encouraged to call Detective Sgt. Ron Hoekwater at (925) 314-3700.

If you’re looking for a bank with a lot of cash on hand, I can see why he would choose the Blackhawk branch. I doubt he lives in the neighborhood.

He should be easy to identify

Come on, no catchy moniker to increase awareness? It’s tradition. The Evil Eye Bandit? …The Lazy Eye Bandit? …

He should have been instantly profiled walking in the door as up to no good, but wait that can’t be done in Ca anymore.
That must of been one heck of a scary note for the teller to just throw cash at him.

Maybe he lives in Blackhawk?

Why SHOULD he have been instantly profiled when he walked through the door?!?…and what would that “profile” reveal?

Easy place to rob, difficult place to get away from – it’s a long way to the freeway in any direction.

I’ve seen this guy on Polk and Levenworth.

It’s real hard not to profile. Sorry.

What a surprise. Yet another bank with a camera system from the late 90’s.

I wonder if at some point public display of pics at crime scenes becomes illegal because it could infer racism?

A photograph, or the posting of a photograph CAN NOT INFER anything. A person viewing a photograph CAN INFER.

The word you are looking for is IMPLY. And no, posting photos of crime suspect does not imply racism. Unless there is a conscious decision to ONLY post photographs of suspects of a certain race, and it is made apparent that ONLY photos of suspects of certain race are being posted — then a person viewing them could INFER racism.

“Lives” is right, I guess a decade away from the workplace has diminished my English skills. Thank you..
