A 62-year-old man shot by police as he allegedly held up an Irvine bank remained in critical condition Sunday.
Irvine police identified the suspect as James Clifford Ballentyne of Anaheim. Ballentyne was shot in the arm, both legs and his side as he allegedly threatened a policeman with a gun following a holdup Friday afternoon at a Crocker National Bank branch at the corner of MacArthur Boulevard and Campus Drive.
Ballentyne, who was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, was not identified immediately after the incident.
According to police, a man who looked to be in his 60s walked into the bank at 3:30 p.m. Friday and demanded to see a bank official. The man then told Don Finer, assistant vice president, that he was armed and wanted money.
Bank employees gave him about $4,000. The robber, who carried a .45-caliber pistol, then ordered Finer to accompany him out of the bank, police said.
