An armed robber held up a bank branch in Simi Valley on Tuesday and escaped with a small amount of cash, authorities said.
The robber entered the Bank of A. Levy branch on Los Angeles Avenue about noon, pulled out an automatic handgun and demanded money from a teller, said FBI Special Agent Gary Auer.
Dressed in a black T-shirt and dark slacks, the robber appeared to be about 30 years old, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a slim build, Auer said. He escaped with a small amount of cash, said Simi Valley Sgt. Arch Morgan.
While the robber is not suspected in any other Ventura County robberies, Auer said he matches the description of a suspect wanted for bank robberies in the Los Angeles area.
