Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to reports of a robbery outside of a bank Monday afternoon.
The incident was reported on the 28000 block of Newhall Ranch Road around 3 p.m., according to SCV Sheriff’s Station Lt. Doug Mohrhoff.
The suspects reportedly stole personal property belonging to the victim, including a Rolex watch, according to station spokeswoman Deputy Natalie Arriaga.
The Chase bank was reportedly closed following the incident as deputies interviewed a couple of witnesses inside.
Sgt. Diego Andrade said multiple units were at the scene as of 3:30 p.m. conducting an investigation.
While employees at the restaurant next door had not seen anything, they said law enforcement had told them that the suspect had left the scene and not to be worried.
The suspects reportedly fled in a Toyota Highlander and remained outstanding as of 4 p.m., Arriaga said.
No further information was available as of the publication of this story.
This incident was the second reported robbery outside a bank, following reports that a man carrying a bag of money was robbed Saturday morning outside of Wells Fargo bank in Canyon Country.
