Police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed the Pacific Service Credit Union on Crow Canyon Place in San Ramon on Wednesday evening.

San Ramon police say their suspect was subsequently identified as Matthew Joshua Gordon, a 42-year-old transient who frequents the Bay Area and Washington state. Investigators allege Gordon is connected to several other recent robberies around the Bay Area.

The San Ramon incident occurred at around 5 p.m. Wednesday when a man entered Pacific Service Credit Union and gave employees a note demanding money. The robber brandished a firearm and exited the bank after receiving an undisclosed amount of money, according to police. He was last seen running near the Costco and Marshall's in Danville.

Through follow-up investigation, officers identified Gordon as their suspect. He remains at large, described as a 6-foot-tall white man weighing approximately 170 pounds.
