Seymour police are investigating after a man walked into Webster Bank this afternoon and demanded money from a teller.
Around 3 p.m., police received several 911 calls reporting a robbery in progress at 15 New Haven Rd.
According to police, the suspect robbed a bank customer who was sitting inside of his car in the parking lot of the bank. The suspect smashed the window of the vehicle and robbed the patron at gunpoint.
The suspect then ran inside the bank, displayed a black handgun, climbed over the counter and filled a small black backpack with money.
He exited the building and drove away in a green Ford Taurus. The amount of money that the suspect stole is still undetermined.
The Ford Taurus was later found in Beacon Falls. Police believe the suspect switched vehicles and drove away in a red Toyota Prius with an accomplice.
Police describe the suspect as a black male, approximately 5’6” with a stocky build. He was wearing black shoes, blue style sweatpants with camouflage pants underneath. The suspect also wore a navy blue, hooded, zippered style sweat jacket with white sleeves and a mask, possible a stocking, to conceal his identity.
The robbery remains under investigation. Anyone with any information or who may have observed anything suspicious is asked to contact the Seymour Police Department at 203-881-7601. There is reward money available for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the suspect.
