Police say man in wheelchair robbed bank
PALO ALTO, Calif. - Palo Alto police are looking for a bank robber who favors a decidedly slow-speed getaway vehicle — an electric wheelchair. Police said a man in his 60s with gray hair and a beard held up the Wachovia Bank branch at the Stanford Shopping Center late this afternoon with a black handgun.
After the stickup, he left in his wheelchair and was last seen motoring down a nearby street toward El Camino Real, a major thoroughfare.
Witnesses say the man's legs were wrapped in bandages and his right leg was sticking straight out while he zoomed away. Police are looking for a white Ford van that the suspect may have been hoisted into after the robbery.
Investigators don't know whether the wheelchair was just a prop or whether the suspect was truly disabled. ___
