A group of California banks have put a price on the head of an elderly robber nicknamed the "Geezer Bandit" after he struck for the seventh time, waiting calmly in line before pointing his gun at a clerk and leaving with a handful of notes.

Three of the banks, all in the San Diego area, have offered a reward of $16,000 (£10,400) for the his arrest. The man, thought to be in his sixties or seventies, struck again in the suburb of Vista on Tuesday.

Wearing what appeared to be prescription glasses and a baseball cap, he handed the bank clerk a demand note and brandished a revolver, then stuffed the money into a personal organiser and left.
