Robbery suspect sought

Fed­er­al and loc­al au­thor­it­ies are try­ing to identi­fy a man who robbed a Bustleton bank branch on Thursday morn­ing.

The heist oc­curred at First Niagara Bank, 9869 Bustleton Ave., at about 10:50 a.m. After en­ter­ing the bank, the rob­ber ap­proached a tell­er, in­dic­ated he had a gun and de­man­ded money. The tell­er handed him an un­dis­closed amount of cash, then he fled on foot north­bound through the bank park­ing lot.

The FBI de­scribed the rob­ber as a black man, about 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and with a me­di­um build. He wore a red Phil­lies base­ball cap, a beige waist-length jack­et, light colored blue jeans and a red shoulder bag. He is con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous.
