The so-called “Babyface Bandit” made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from a Newport Beach Bank of America branch Thursday, according to the FBI.
At 9:30 a.m., he apparently entered the bank at 3300 E. Coast Highway and gave a teller a note demanding money, according to Kathy Lowe of the Newport Beach Police Department.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said the suspect has a "stooped posture." He is about 25 to 30 years old, 6 feet tall and 160 pounds, according to police, who said he was wearing a gray sweatshirt with a black, white and gray "DC" emblem on the front, indigo blue jeans and black sunglasses.
Surveillance photos (pictured at right) of the "Babyface Bandit" have been released.
Anyone with information about the holdup was asked to call Detective Brian Moore at (949) 644-3764 or make an anonymous tip through OC Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS, or (855) 847-6227.
