Somerton bank robber on the loose

The FBI and Phil­adelphia po­lice seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing a masked man who robbed a Somer­ton bank last Thursday morn­ing.

At 9:26 a.m., the sus­pect entered the First Niagara Bank at 11730 Bustleton Ave., ap­proached a tell­er and presen­ted a note de­mand­ing money and stat­ing that he had a bomb.

The tell­er gave the ban­dit an un­dis­closed amount of cash. He fled on foot in an un­known dir­ec­tion.

Au­thor­it­ies de­scribe the sus­pect as about 6 feet, 3 inches tall; thin; and in his mid-30s. He wore a black scarf across his face, a black base­ball cap with “PHILLY” em­bossed across the front and a black trench coat. He is con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous.

Call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the po­lice at 215-686-TIPS to re­port in­form­a­tion about the case. Tips may be sent via text to PPD TIP or 773847.
