CALEXICO — A lone gunman walked into the Bank of America here in the middle of the day Wednesday, demanded money from a teller and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The bank robbery occurred after a man entered the Bank of America at 37 E. 2nd St. shortly before 2 p.m. The man entered through the bank's south entrance and stood in line, waiting for a teller.
When he walked up to a teller, he handed her a note and showed her his handgun.
He spoke to her in Spanish, according to Bob Sellers, local supervisory senior resident agent for the FBI. Sellers declined to say what the man said to the teller.
Sellers said the teller did what she was supposed to do in handing over an undisclosed amount of money to the robber.
