Gunman holds up US Bank branch in Garden Grove, remains at large


A male Asian carrying a black semi-automatic handgun burst into a US Bank in Garden Grove on Wednesday and stole money from two teller stations, police said.

The suspect remains at large.

The heist occurred at 1:38 p.m. at the US Bank at 12112 Valley View St. at Chapman Avenue.

The suspect is described as being in his 20s and, at the time of the robbery, was wearing a black long-sleeved T-shirt and a black baseball cap with a white front panel with a black logo on it and sunglasses.

Police said that after entering the bank, the man drew his handgun and demanded money from one of the tellers.

He then jumped the counter and started emptying the money out of her workstation, police said.

The bank robber then yelled across to another teller and ordered her to remove the money from her workstation.

When he was finished getting the money from the first workstation, he went to the second teller’s location and took the money she had removed, according to police.

The suspect then fled on foot northbound through the parking lot.

No vehicle was seen or heard leaving the parking lot at that time, police say.

Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

The Garden Grove PD and the FBI are investigating.

Anyone who saw a person of this description fleeing the area or recognize him from the photo is asked to call the Garden Grove Police Department at 714-741-5704.
