UPDATE 4:45 p.m.: Atascadero police are searching for two people in connection with a robbery of the Citibank branch in the 6900 block of El Camino Real on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers were dispatched to the bank just before 12:45 p.m., where they learned that a man in his mid- to late-30s had entered the bank, demanded money from one of the tellers and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No weapon was used, and no one was injured.

Once he left the business, the man got into a dark blue, late-model, two-door sedan driven by a woman in her late 30s. The car was last seen making a U-turn on El Camino Real near the Denny’s restaurant and heading south toward Highway 41 and El Camino Real.

The man is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall to 6 feet, 4 inches tall and 260 to 300 pounds, with a shaved head and clean-shaven face. He was wearing a dark colored T-shirt with a blue-and-red Reebok logo, blue jeans and a pair of black sunglasses.

The woman is described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a medium build and shoulder-length black hair, wearing a white top and jeans.

Atascadero police ask anyone with information about the incident to call 461-5051.
