HERCULES -- Police are on the lookout for a man they believe may be responsible for stealing money from victims' bank accounts.

On Monday, a Hercules woman told police she made an ATM deposit at the Hercules branch of the Bank of America, on Jan. 11 around 2:20 p.m.

When she later viewed her account online, she saw numerous fraudulent charges had taken place that day between 2:21 p.m. and 2:25 p.m.

The woman told police a man stood very close to her while she was doing her transactions and that when she left, he was still standing by the ATM.

The suspect was described as a black male, between 20 and 30 years old, more than 6 feet tall with a slim build. He had short, wavy hair and was wearing blue jeans with gold embroidery on his back pockets and a navy blue puffy jacket.

A similarly described man was seen at the Bank of America on Oct. 22. Police said it appeared as if he was trying to view the PIN numbers that customers entered and would then attempt to use his own card to access their accounts.

Anyone with information on these incidents can call the Hercules Police Department at 510-724-1111.
