Reward Offered For Info Leading to Arrest of New Haven Robbery Suspect

A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of a man accused of robbing a bank in New Haven on Tuesday.

Officers were called to a bank robbery at the Key Bank on Grand Avenue in the Fair Haven neighborhood around 4 p.m.

Police said they were told that a man jumped over the counter, yelled aggressively at a bank teller and then took cash from the teller's drawer. He then reportedly jumped back over the counter, left the bank and fled on foot on Ferry Street.

During the robbery, the man said he had a gun, but no weapon was seen, according to authorities.

The man is described as being 6' tall with a grey and black beard. He was last seen wearing dark pants, a green jacket with military patches, a winter cap and white sneakers.

Investigators said they are aware of similarities between this suspect and the suspect who is accused of robbing the Wells Fargo bank on Foxon Boulevard on Friday, May 10, 2019 and Saturday, April 27, 2019.

The Connecticut Bankers Reward Association is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the man seen in surveillance photos is asked to call New Haven Police Department Detective Bureau at (203) 946-6304. Callers may remain anonymous.
