North County Bank Robbed

A man armed with a pistol robbed a North County bank this afternoon.

The thief, who appeared to be in his 20s, confronted a teller at the Wells Fargo branch office in the 1500 block of West Valley Parkway in Escondido and demanded cash shortly before 3 p.m., Sgt. Jim Lanigan said.

The bandit fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a small four-door Toyota sedan, according to Lanigan.
