A woman walked into the U.S. Bank in Menlo Park on Friday afternoon and, after handing the teller a note demanding money, left with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the police report.
The bank is at 1105 El Camino Real, next to Stacks' restaurant at Santa Cruz Avenue.
The suspect may be linked to other bank robberies in the Bay Area, Menlo Park police said. Witnesses described her as a Hispanic or Pacific Islander woman in her mid-30s with dark hair in a ponytail. She wore a grey sweatshirt, jeans and a baseball cap.
No weapon was seen and no one was injured, Police Sgt. Matthew Ortega said.
Police ask that anyone with information about this crime, committed around 1:46 p.m., to call investigators at 330-6300.
This is the second case of a woman robbing a bank in downtown Menlo Park in the past 10 days. On Oct. 29, a woman robbed the nearby Bank of the West at 701 Santa Cruz Ave. at Curtis Street.
