New Haven police are trying to track down a bank robber who jumped the counter at a local bank and demanded money from the tellers.
Police said the suspect above robbed the Wells Fargo branch at 391 Foxon Boulevard around 3:30 p.m. Friday. Witnesses said the man jumped the counter and grabbed at the cash draws, demanding money. He then shoved cash in his pants and left.
The suspect was last seen behind the bank where he climbed a fence facing Foxon Street. Investigators said they found money along the fence line.
The suspect was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and a white mask. Police said someone with a similar description robbed the same bank on April 27. The picture above shows the suspect before he entered the bank in April. Surveillance from Friday’s robbery was not immediately released.
Anyone with information should contact the New Haven Police Department Detective Bureau at 203-946-6304.
