CENTER CITY — Somebody robbed a Center City bank on a busy street during rush hour and the FBI/PPD Violent Crimes Task Force is hoping somebody else can identify him.
They’re even offering a reward for information leading to his capture, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
The holdup happened at the PNC Bank at 1511 Walnut Street on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at about 4:38pm.
Authorities say the robber
“entered the bank, approached the counter, and presented a threatening demand note to a teller.”
That note made reference to a bomb, but nobody saw any device.
The teller gave the crook an undisclosed amount of cash, and he ran away.
The suspect is described as in his late 40s to early 50s (but the wanted poster reads “late 50s to early 60s”), with a large build.
He was wearing a gray polo shirt, khaki pants, camouflage cap with white Liberty Bell on the front, and black sneakers, and he was carrying a blue string bag.
He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about him or the robbery is urged to call the FBI/PPD Violent Crimes Task Force at 215-418-4000.
