Patrol officers from the Seal Beach Police Department were dispatched to a bank robbery in progress at the Chase Bank, 801 Pacific Coast Highway, Seal Beach.
Although officers arrived on scene shortly after the call was made, there was a 4-5 minute time delay from the time of crime and the time of 911 call. The suspect was armed with a silver, long-barreled, handgun/revolver and was described as a male Caucasian, approximately 6'3, thin build, with a black or gray top, dark colored jeans, and wearing a black ski mask.
The suspect fled the bank on foot, in an unknown direction.
This suspect matches the description of a bank robbery suspect from recent cases out of both Laguna Beach and Torrance, CA.
Anyone with information about this event or the attached photographs is urged to contact Seal Beach Police Detective Pete Krok at 562-799-4100, Extension 1110.
