  • On August 8, 2019, at approximately 3:02 p.m., an unknown suspect entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 1090 East Ray Road in Chandler, Arizona. Once inside, the suspect approached the teller counter and presented a robbery demand note written on blue paper with black ink. The suspect mumbled a request, but the victim teller could not understand, so another teller was called over to assist. At that time, the suspect brandished a black handgun and stated that he wanted the money. The suspect also discreetly pointed the handgun at an unaware customer, advising the victim tellers that they needed to hurry up or the customer would be in danger. Both victim tellers complied with the robbery demand and provided a known amount of U.S. currency. After obtaining the money, the suspect fled from the bank towards the south.
