Philadelphia police and the FBI seek the public’s help in identifying the man who robbed a Somerton bank last Wednesday.
At about 11:35 a.m., the robber entered the First Niagara Bank branch at 11730 Bustleton Ave., presented a threatening demand note to a teller, obtained an undisclosed amount of cash and fled in a southbound direction.
Authorities described the robber as black, in his late 30s or early 40s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a medium build and a medium complexion. He had a goatee beard and moustache and wore a black baseball cap with an unknown insignia, along with a white hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants and white latex gloves. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Investigators believe the same man robbed the First Niagara Bank branch at 9869 Bustleton Ave. in Bustleton on Jan. 10.
Call police via 911 or the FBI at 215-418-4000 to report information about the case. Tipsters can remain anonymous. ••
