San Luis Obispo police have released a forensic artist’s sketch of a man suspected in a May 3 robbery of the Golden 1 Credit Union bank at 852 Foothill Blvd.
Bank employees said the man entered the bank at 3:15 p.m., carrying a handgun, and told everyone to get on the floor. He then handed a plastic bag to a bank employee and told him to place money in the bag. The suspect exited the bank and was last seen running north.
Witnesses described the suspect as black or dark-skinned Hispanic, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, jeans, blue tennis shoes and had a bandanna or dark shirt partially covering his face. One witness saw the letters "LA" tattooed on his left hand.
Last week, the police met with a forensic artist who drew up a portrait of the robber based on the description of a witness who saw him running from the bank.
