Robber hits Citizens for some cash


Po­lice rushed to the May­fair tire-slash­er’s old haunt on Fri­day to hunt for a ban­dit who robbed a loc­al bank.

Au­thor­it­ies now seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing the Phil­adelphia pro sports fan who stole an un­dis­closed amount of cash from the Cit­izens Bank at 7327 Frank­ford Ave. shortly be­fore 4 that af­ter­noon.

The rob­ber wore a Phil­lies sweat shirt and an Eagles cap as he ap­proached a tell­er, presen­ted a threat­en­ing de­mand note and fled with the loot, po­lice said. He was last seen run­ning east­bound on the 4000 block of Tees­dale St. Co­in­cid­ent­ally, that’s the same block where much of the re­cent auto­mobile tire slash­ing oc­curred.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as black, about 20 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall and thin. He had a mous­tache and goat­ee. His Phil­lies sweat shirt was bright red and hat was pre­dom­in­antly black with a vin­tage Eagles logo on the front. He also wore sunglasses, blue jeans, dark shoes and a dark scarf that he pulled up to con­ceal his face dur­ing the heist.
