PLEASANTON -- Authorities are searching for a man suspected of robbing a Bank of America branch Tuesday afternoon.
About 1:35 p.m., police responded to reports of a robbery at a Bank of America location on the 6000 block of Stoneridge Drive, Lt. Brian Laurence said. Officers arrived and began searching for the suspect, who had fled the bank before they arrived.
