Man Robs Bank While Fox 29 Interviews Cops Nearby

Police are looking for a man who they say robbed a bank across the street from Fox 29 while an officer was being interviewed on-air.

A bearded man in a Phillies cap robbed the TD Bank at Fourth and Market this morning, police say. Amazingly, the robbery took place while Fox 29 was about to interview Philadelphia police chief inspector Joe Sullivan just a block away. Sullivan then went running after the suspect, and bike cops followed.

Sullivan was on air to be interviewed about the annual Irish Pub Tour de Shore. Fox 29’s headquarters are across the street from the TD Bank. The suspect remains at large; Fox 29’s Good Day Philadelphia reported that a witness believes he saw the suspect change clothing. The station also reported a bank tracking device and some cash was later found near Aramingo and York.
