SAN DIEGO – A 19-year-old woman was arrested last week on suspicion of being the “Sun Hat Bandit” who robbed a Mission FCU branch and two banks within hours last month.

The robber wore the same distinctive hat in all three holdups and told tellers that she had a gun, authorities said.

Victoria Wilkerson is suspected of the May 10 robberies at a Wells Fargo branch and a Chase Bank branch in San Diego and a Mission FCU office in Spring Valley.
