Hartford Police Seek Bank Robbery Suspect

Hartford police are looking for a man who robbed a bank on Franklin Avenue Saturday morning.

Police say they responded to a hold up alarm at the People’s United Bank located at 290 Franklin Avenue around 11:15 a.m. Employees reported that the suspect handed a teller two notes. The first said “I have a gun, quiet” and the second one read “I have a gun and a bomb, give me money.”

The teller complied and handed the suspect money from her drawer. The suspect then shoved the money into his pant pocket and fled the bank in an unknown direction.

The suspect made off with $3,160 worth of U.S. currency. No injuries were reported.

Police say the victim is described as a light skin male with a slight beard, wearing a blue hoodie, blue Yankee’s cap, and black printed t-shirt. Police seized one of the hold up notes the suspect left behind as evidence.

Anyone with information or who recognizes the man in the photo above should contact Sgt. Rivera in the Hartford police major crimes division at (860) 757 4316.
