Police: 'Babyface' Bank Robber Still Outstanding

The 'Babyface Bandit' who robbed the Bank of America on East Coast Highway in Corona del Mar Thursday fled with an unknown amount of cash.

Newport Beach police say no new leads have surfaced in the robbery of the Bank of America in Corona del Mar last week.

A man described by the FBI as having a "stooped posture," walked into the bank, located at 3300 E. Coast Highway, on Thursday about 9:30 a.m. According to police, the suspect handed a note to the teller demanding the cash from the teller drawer and then fled out the back door.

"The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made," Kathy Lowe, police spokeswoman, told Patch on Monday.

The suspect is described as a white man, 25 to 30-years-old, standing 6-feet tall. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt with a "DC" emblem on the front, dark pants and black sunglasses.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity or whereabouts is asked to call Newport Beach police Det. Brian Moore at 949-644-3764, or 800-550-NBPD. If you wish to remain anonymous, you may call O.C. Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS or 1-855-847-6227.
