Philadelphia police and the FBI are seeking the public’s help in identifying a gunman who robbed a bank in Fox Chase on Friday afternoon.
At about 2 p.m., the bandit entered Beneficial Bank at 1411 Rhawn St., pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at a teller and demanded money. The teller surrendered an undisclosed amount of cash to the robber, who fled the scene, possibly in a black SUV, authorities said.
The robber is a black man of unknown age, about 6 feet tall and 240 pounds. He has a medium complexion and wore blue jeans, black shoes, black gloves, a red baseball cap with an unknown white logo and a gray hooded sweatshirt, which he used to cover his face.
Investigators consider the man armed and dangerous. Call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or police at 215-686-TIPS or text to “PPD TIPS” to report information about the case. Tipsters may remain anonymous. ••
