The FBI and Phil­adelphia po­lice are try­ing to identi­fy a gun­man who robbed a Somer­ton bank on Nov. 5.

The heist oc­curred at about 4:05 p.m. at Cit­izens Bank, 10650 Bustleton Ave., when the crook entered the bank, bran­dished a hand­gun and de­man­ded money from a tell­er, au­thor­it­ies said. He fled with an un­dis­closed amount of cash west­bound on Par­lin Street, pos­sibly in a light-colored Chrysler PT Cruis­er or hatch­back. No in­jur­ies were re­por­ted.

Au­thor­it­ies de­scribed the rob­ber as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s, between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall, with a thin build. He wore a gray hooded sweat­shirt, blue jeans and a light-colored base­ball cap with sunglasses.

He is con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous. Call the FBI at 215-418-4000 to re­port in­form­a­tion. Callers may be eli­gible for a re­ward and may re­main an­onym­ous. ••
