Man robs Mission Federal office in East County

EL CAJON (KUSI) — A tall, thin thief robbed an East County credit union office Friday, authorities said.

The man handed a demand note to a teller at the Mission Federal branch office in the 700 block of North Johnson Avenue in El Cajon shortly before 11 a.m., according to the FBI.

Though the bandit displayed no weapon, his written message made reference to one he supposedly was carrying, the federal agency reported.

After the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber walked out of the office and fled the area on foot.

He was described as a slim, roughly 6-foot white man in his 50s, wearing khaki shorts and a blue-striped polo shirt.
