A brightly garbed young man robbed the First Trust Bank branch on the 1900 block of Cottman Av­en­ue Monday morn­ing.

The 6-foot thin white man in his twen­ties was wear­ing a red Phil­lies base­ball cap, a red T-shirt and a red long-sleeved shirt un­der­neath, ac­cord­ing to in­form­a­tion re­leased by the FBI.

The brown-haired man entered the bank at 10:04 a.m Monday, presen­ted a threat­en­ing de­mand note to a tell­er and told the tell­er he was armed, the FBI stated in a news re­lease. He nev­er showed a weapon. After ob­tain­ing cash from the tell­er, he fled the bank.

Any­one with in­form­a­tion on the rob­bery or the rob­ber should call the FBI at 215-418-4000. Tip­sters may re­main an­onym­ous. The man should be con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous, the FBI warned.
