Sacramento police are asking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the May 16 robbery attempt at a downtown bank.

At 9:45 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Chase Bank in the 800 block of K Street. A man reportedly entered the bank, walked up to a teller and held up a demand note. No money was given to the man, who abruptly left the bank on foot, according to a Police Department news release.

The suspect was described as East Indian, in his 30s, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a medium build. He had short brown hair and a beard. He was wearing a long-sleeved, striped button-down shirt and black pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357, or text a tip to 274637. Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Call The Bee’s Cathy Locke, (916) 321-5287.
