The Benicia Police Department received a report at 10:57 am this morning (February 24th) that the US Bank at 848 Southampton Road had been robbed by the suspect as described below. The suspect walked up to a teller, said he had "a gun" and demanded money. The teller complied and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
