Man sought in Rhawnhurst bank heist

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.

To re­port in­form­a­tion about these cases, call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or Phil­adelphia po­lice at 215-686-TIPS. ••
