Riverside, Ca-  On Tuesday January 10, 2005 at approximately 12:45 P.M. Riverside Police Officers responded to a bank robbery at the Premier Service Bank located at 3637 Arlington Avenue. This was the second robbery to occur there in the past two weeks.

A lone female entered the bank and passed a note to a teller demanding money. She was described as a White or Hispanic female adult, approximately 30 years of age. She had long brown hair, wore a brown jacket, and carried a reddish brown purse. She was about 507 tall and weighed approximately 170 to 190 pounds. She indicated she had a gun but no weapon was seen.
