FREMONT -- Police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who held up a downtown Wells Fargo Bank branch Thursday afternoon.

Police were dispatched at 12:18 p.m. to the branch at 39265 Paseo Padre Parkway for a report of a bank robbery that had just occurred, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.

Employees told officers that just before 12:20 p.m. a man entered the bank and handed a robbery demand letter to one of the employees. The employee complied with the note and the man ran out of the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. Bosques said. Officers responded to the area, Bosques said, but the man was no where to be found.

Police described the suspect as a black man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5'10" to 6'01," with a thin build. He wore a black beanie with a white bandana under it, black framed sunglasses with green neon on the sides, a brown jacket with a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans. He also carried a black backpack.

Police said they are reviewing video surveillance of the robbery.

The case remained under investigation on Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 510-790-6900, email Detective Bryce Loughery at Bloughery@fremont.gov or submit an anonymous tip via Nixle.
