Cal Poly University Police
Police are looking for a face-punching cell phone thief who has attacked at least two students on the Cal Poly Pomona campus.
In both cases -- one on April 30 and the other on May 3 -- the guy was a real jerk: First he walks up to a student, asks to borrow their cell phone, then punches them in the face. Then he runs away.
University police released a composite sketch of the suspect this week, and describe him as a thin white man in his early 20s, 5-foot-9 and 140 pounds, with spiky blond hair and acne scars on his face.
The man also may be responsible for a third incident in November of last year, police say.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call university police at (909) 869-3070. Anonymous tips may be made by calling (909) 869-3399.
Meanwhile, Cal Poly students in San Luis Obispo, where the main campus is, are being attacked by a literal turkey.
Seal Beach Police Department
Authorities in Seal Beach are looking for the man shown in this video surveillance footage.
FBI agents announced they are joining the search for a man who robbed a bank in Seal Beach while apparently wielding a pipe bomb.
The robbery occurred last Friday afternoon at about 3:40 p.m. at U.S. Bank, located in the Leisure World Shopping Center. According to the Seal Beach Police Department, the robber first displayed a handgun to bank employees, then placed what he said was a pipe bomb down on a desk. He then demanded cash, and authorities say he fled with an undisclosed amount.
The robber is described as a white man between 25 and 35 years old, with a thin build and wearing a beige cap and plaid shirt. Anyone with information is urged to contact Seal Beach police Detective Gary Krogman at (562) 799-4100, ext. 1108 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
