No, these hooded figures are not images of Death but robbers who held up the Bank of the West on North California Boulevard Tuesday. This is the second time in about three months that this bank has been hit by a robbery.
Sgt. Roman Martinez released this information about the holdup:
At about 9:38 a.m. two men in hoodies--the outfit of choice for bank robbers--entered the bank. One was armed with a black semiautomatic pistol. The robbers approached the tellers and demanded money. They fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of money towards North California Boulevard.
The robbers are described as black males, both with thin builds. The one with the pistol was wearing a gray long-sleeved sweatshirt and black gloves. The other was wearing a black sweatshirt, black jeans, black shoes, and black gloves.
Anyone with information on this robbery should call the Walnut Creek police department at (925) 943-5844.
