Female bank tellers, gird your loins -- a robber is hitting up banks in the Southland, and he's so youthful and good-looking that he's been given the nickname the "Babyface Bandit."

The bandit reportedly robbed a Newport Beach Bank of America yesterday, according to NBC Los Angeles. He allegedly walked in at about 9:30, and handed the teller a note requesting money. He was so good-looking that she thought nothing of it (just kidding.)

The suspect is described as between 25 and 30, six feet tall and about 160 pounds. He was wearing a hoodie and sunglasses when he brought down the BoA.

If you have information, authorities are asking that you call Detective Brian Moore at (949) 644-3764 or make an anonymous tip through OC Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS, or (855) 847-6227.
