EL SOBRANTE -- Deputies are seeking a man who robbed a woman at gunpoint outside a bank Tuesday morning, a Contra Costa Sheriff's Office spokesman said.

The woman was in the parking lot of the Bank of America at 3939 San Pablo Dam Road about 9:50 a.m., when a man holding a gun approached and demanded money, Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Lee said in an email. The woman, who was at the bank to deposit money, gave the man cash. The man got into a car and drove away. The woman was uninjured.

Police did not say in what kind of vehicle the man left in, and they did not have a description of him.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office dispatch line at 925-646-2441 or its tip line at 1-866-846-3592.
