Man with rifle holds up bank on Ritchie Highway

March 21, 1997

A man armed with a long-barreled rifle robbed a Pasadena bank branch Wednesday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

The robber walked into the Signet Bank branch in the 8000 block of Ritchie Highway about 11: 30 a.m., pulled out the rifle and walked into the bank manager's office.

Police said the robber forced the manager out to a teller's counter, demanded that the teller put money into a canvas bag and threatened to shoot the teller if she did not comply.

After he got the cash, the man fled west on Jumpers Hole Mall parking lot. Police did not have a detailed description of him.
