SoCal Bank Customers Targeted In Late-Night ATM Robberies

RANCHO CUCAMONGA (CBS) β€” An armed man suspected of robbing customers at several Southland ATM machines remained on the loose Friday.

KNX 1070’s Vytas Safronikas reports bank patrons are on edge in eastern Los Angeles County and western San Bernardino County.

The suspect has targeted ATMs in Claremont, Diamond Bar and Rancho Cucamonga, police said.

Over a three-day period beginning Oct. 16, the suspect β€” armed with a semiautomatic handgun β€” approached customers using ATM machines between 11:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., police said.

“It appears to be the same suspect in all three cases, same type of clothing, appears to be the same in all the surveillance videos,” Claremont Police Detective Rick Varney said.

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic between 20 and 25 years old, 5’6″ tall and approximately 170 pounds, black hair and seen wearing white tennis shoes, black sweat pants, and a blue/white checkered hooded
