Police and the FBI seek the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed the TruMark Financial Credit Union in Rhawnhurst last Wednesday.
The robber entered the business at 7306 Castor Ave. at 7:06 p.m., handed a demand note to a teller, obtained an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot. He was last seen headed north on Castor Avenue toward Rhawn Street.
He was described as a black man in his 40s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and stocky. He has a round face, light complexion and short facial hair. He wore a green jacket, light-colored pants, light brown work boots and a tan baseball cap with a green bill. The cap had a purplish logo with “Martine’s” or a similar name on it.
Authorities believe the same man robbed the First Niagara Bank at 11730 Bustleton Ave. in Somerton on Jan. 16.
