MAN ROBS SAN RAMON BANK: San Ramon police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who robbed a bank today and briefly took an employee hostage.

The holdup happened just before noon when the man walked into the U.S. Bank at 2821 Crow Canyon Road and demanded money in "large bills" from several tellers while armed with a revolver, police said.

As he left, he "directed one of the employees to accompany him out of the building," police said. The robber walked with the employee for about 150 yards to a residential area before telling her to return to the bank.

The robber is described as a white man, about 40 to 45 years old, with gray facial stubble. He was wearing a dark-colored pea coat, gray hooded sweatshirt, black beanie, dark colored trousers and dark colored cotton or wool gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Ramon police at (925) 973-2700.
