At around 11:45 a.m. Friday, the suspect walked into the Bank of America branch located at 10048 S. Sierra Avenue in Fontana, California.
The unidentified male passed a note under the bandit barrier to a teller saying, “This is a robbery, I have a gun. If you don’t want no one to get hurt, give me the money,” according to Laura Eimiller of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Los Angeles Field Office.
According to reports, when the teller did not immediately comply, the bandit stated, “I’m not kidding,” and grabbed an employee standing at the next window.
The suspect then grabbed the employee by her neck and pulled her hair, according to Eimiller.
After receiving the cash, the man exited the bank. There was no vehicle observed.
The bank robber has been dubbed the “Caveman Bandit” based on his boorish behavior, Eimiller said.
He is described as a white male, around 25-30 years of age. The suspect stands 5 feet, 5 inches tall, weighs 140 pounds, and has brown eyes and dark hair.
The FBI is offering a reward in exchange for information leading to the arrest of the Caveman Bandit. Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the FBI at (888) CANT HIDE.
