Bank robber sought

The FBI is searching for the suspect who robbed a Citizens Bank branch yesterday.

The suspect entered the 2516 Welsh Rd. branch at 2:30 p.m. and gave the teller a threatening note before fleeing with an undetermined amount of cash.

He is described as a black male in his 30s, about 6’3″ tall with a large build. He had a thin mustache and goatee, and was wearing a device on his forehead (possibly a flashlight), a black t-shirt and brown cargo pants. Police consider him armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the FBI at 215-418-4000.
