Earlier today, a bank robbery occurred at the Wells Fargo Bank located at 39265 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont.  Just before 12:20 p.m. an unknown suspect entered the bank and handed a robbery demand letter to one of the employees.  The employee complied with the note and the suspect fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.  Multiple officers and robbery detectives responded to the area, but the suspect was not located.

The suspect is described as a black male adult in his late 20’s to early 30’s, 5’10” – 6’01,” thin build, wearing a black beanie with a white bandana under it, black framed sunglasses with green neon on the sides, a brown jacket with a gray hooded sweatshirt and a visible orange color “A” on the chest,  jeans and was carrying a black backpack. Video surveillance of the robbery was obtained and we are making several photos available in an attempt to identify the suspect.

Thank you for your assistance.

  1. Why don’t you guys just shut this down. There have been good stories that would give you traffic here. The proposed $650 million school bond issue, Connelly shopping center, Warm Springs development proposal, retail on Sabercat drive, police successfully capture in Warm Springs…….. but yet nothing of interest from the paper to get it started.

  2. Gotta agree with the sentiment. Time and effort goes into inconsequential bs. The real meat goes largely untouched.

  3. I speculate that the Fremont political power base (which includes our Council, CoC, and WTHS Board) would completely agree with hippycritter as far as wanting this thing just shut down. They also don’t appreciate closer scrutiny of the meatier topics our media chooses to avoid.
    Why is it that politicians and civic leaders everywhere are actively participating in multiple social networks in which to actively engage constituency but, OUR leaders keep themselves isolated to the relative safety of their chambers?
    Is it the fact that their respective legacies are peppered with a growing list of conflicts and misses?
    Farber’s comp, justification for WTHS special tax district, Centerville debacle, our recurring trips to India, red light cameras,

  4. bbox231, I agree. Another voice has been muzzeled. The Patch used to touch on political news but now just copies the Fremont police log, so much for local news or any news of, or discussion of local politics.
    Althou the Fremont Bulletin, out of Milpitas (that is sad) reported on large donations to Stecklers campaign, it looks like the whole family contributed some signiicant amounts of money.

  5. WavyGravy/hippycritter is right…Fremonts political power base or at least a few city council members (who have most certainly vacationed on the tax payers dime) now have egg all over their faces. Those that go off to India on snipe hunts need to explain or expect to be defined as corrupt and hypocritical.
