MILLBRAE (CBS SF) –The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office wants the public’s help in locating a man who robbed a bank in Millbrae at gunpoint on Friday.

Deputies were called to reports of a robbery at the Chase bank at 10 South El Camino Real just before 3 p.m., according sheriff’s spokeswoman Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt.
