FBI seeks public’s help in Philadelphia bank heist

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police and the FBI are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a man who robbed a city bank.

The FBI says the man entered the Citizens Bank branch on Stenton Avenue about 2:15 p.m. Monday and handed the teller a threatening note. Police don’t say what the note said, but say they consider the man “armed and dangerous.”

Police believe the same man tried to rob a PNC Bank branch on North Broad Street on Saturday.

They say the suspect is a black man, about 6-foot-2, who has a dark complexion and a salt-and-pepper beard. Authorities say he appears to be in his late 30s or early 40s.

The FBI says there may be a reward for information leading to the man’s arrest.
