Two Philly Banks Were Robbed Yesterday, Police Seeking Suspects
Federal and local investigators are searching for suspects in a pair of what they say are unrelated bank robberies that took place in Philly on Monday afternoon.
In the first, a suspect entered Citizens Bank, 7327 Frankford Ave., around 12:40 p.m. He handed the teller a demand note and received an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect — a white man in his 20s, about 5’10”, with a beard and mustache and a heavily bandaged left hand — was last seen fleeing south on Frankford. The suspect wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, black jacket, and gray Sixers cap.
The second robbery took place at 2 p.m., at the PNC Bank, 1111 Market St. He also handed over a demand note, and also fled with an undisclosed amount of cash — last seen heading west on Market. He is described as a black male in his 50s, approximately 5’10”, thin with a salt-and-pepper goatee. He wore a gray zip-up hooded sweatshirt, black pants, gray flat cap, and white sneakers.
Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous. People with information about the robberies are asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000.
