The Bank of the West branch on the corner of Figueroa and State streets was reported robbed this afternoon. Police got a call at around 3:10 p.m. notifying them of the incident.

The suspect was described as an older Hispanic male who presented employees with a note demanding money. He had no visible weapon on him, and “It gets pretty generic from there,” Detective Jose La Torre said on the scene.

On-site officers declined to elaborate with details, and a police spokesperson was unavailable for comment.
