Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect wanted in connection to three bank robberies across San Diego.

The latest attempted robbery occurred on Wednesday afternoon at approximately 1:43 p.m. at the Wells Fargo bank on the 9900 block of Scripps Ranch Boulevard.

According to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD), the suspect gave a demand note to the bank teller and said he had a gun. When the teller did not comply, the suspect ran away.

Although the suspect stated he had a gun, SDPD says no weapon was seen.
