A housekeeper’s heart skipped a beat when she noticed her car missing on Monday morning outside an Agoura Hills home she was cleaning.
The surprises didn’t stop there for Mayra Perdomo.
Perdomo said she looked out the kitchen window and was surprised to see her car was not where she had parked it in front of the house. Detectives later told him the robbers headed to a nearby mall and robbed a bank.
“When they told me that, I was shocked,” Perdomo said. “My car is an old car, a 2002 Dodge Neon. I can’t believe it.”
The car, which Perdomo uses to get to work and take his son to school, was recovered near the bank, but he said it was badly damaged.
The thief took items containing personal information from inside the car, Perdomo said. It also contained her cleaning supplies, her car seat and her son’s football kit.
No arrests have been reported for the carjacking and bank robbery, which happened around 10 a.m. Monday at Citi Bank on Kanan Road in Agoura Hills.
The FBI provided NBCLA with security camera photos of a thief, who handed a note to the cashier and drove away with cash in what authorities believe to be Perdomo’s car.
The man, who wore a face mask, wore a brightly patterned sweatshirt.
