Burholme bandit still at large


Phil­adelphia po­lice and the FBI seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing an un­known man who robbed the Cit­izens Bank branch at 7248 Rising Sun Ave. in Burholme last Thursday.

The sus­pect entered the bank at 12:13 p.m., presen­ted a threat­en­ing de­mand note to a tell­er, ob­tained an un­dis­closed amount of cash and fled south on Ox­ford Av­en­ue, said au­thor­it­ies, who did not spe­cify if he fled on foot or in a vehicle.

The sus­pect was de­scribed as His­pan­ic, 30 years old, 5 feet 5 inches or 5 feet 6 inches tall and thin or me­di­um build. He had a mous­tache and full beard and wore sunglasses, a black hooded sweat­shirt, black sweat­pants and a black coat with an or­ange liner and fur-trimmed hood.

Cit­izens who see this man should not ap­proach him. He is con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous. Tip­sters should call 215-686-TIPS or 215-418-4000. In an emer­gency, dial 911. ••
