Before his departure, the man, feed clad in combat boots, leapt over the teller’s desk and roughed up an employee. As his frustration grew, he became even more agitated. “We’re treating him as armed and dangerous,” said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. “He was very aggressive, very intimidating and he used a very large amount of profanity during the robbery.” The suspect, described as a 5-foot-5, 160-pound Latino with a muscular build and dark, close-cropped hair, hopped into a black, late-model Chevrolet sedan and made his escape down Brand. “He’s definitely not a highly intelligent person,” Vairo said. “But he’s armed with a gun, even if we can’t tell if it’s real or not, so we’ve got to go after him.” For more news about cops and crime, check out It’s a Crime. SAN FERNANDO – Some bank robbers get caught red-handed, but the orange-gloved bandit got away and authorities asked for the public’s help Friday to track him down. On Sept. 8, the suspect barged into the Citibank at 456 S. Brand Blvd. brandishing an oversized, apparently phony pistol and demanding money. He wore a black shirt, dark pants, large sunglasses and blazingly orange gardening gloves. His choice of props mirrored his skill at robbery, police said. “He tries a takeover and he doesn’t get anywhere with anyone,” said San Fernando Police Department Detective Anthony Vairo. “He goes to a teller, but they’re closed out. He goes to the vault and it’s locked. I guess he just got frustrated and left.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
