A light skinned man in his 20s reportedly entered the bank near wearing dark clothing, according to Tracy police Sgt. Luis Mejia.
The man allegedly walked up to one of the tellers, threatened her and ran out of the bank with an undetermined amount of cash, Mejia said at the scene.
He refused to comment on whether the man had a weapon but did say that a firearm was not used. Details about how the man allegedly threatened the teller or the exact description of the man's clothing were also not being disclosed by Mejia. He said the release of such details could hurt the investigation.
Three employees and two customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery, according to Mejia.
The robber was seen driving away from the bank but investigators were still trying to determine the make and model of the vehicle by checking footage from surveillance cameras at nearby businesses, Mejia said.
The bank was reopened for business at 10:20 a.m.
Mejia said investigators are checking to see if there is a link between this robbery and the attempted robbery of the Bank of West at 810 W. Schulte Road on Nov. 9.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding the robbery to call Det. Timothy Bauer at 831-6605 or call 831-4847 to make an anonymous crime tip.
