Police Release Photos of Suspect in Ambler Savings Bank Robbery
The description of the suspect is similar to the one released in the robbery of a Lower Providence bank last week.
Authorities are looking for an unidentified man who robbed the Ambler Savings Bank at the intersection of Germantown Pike and Route 363 in Worcester Township on Monday morning.
Pennsylvania State Police said the man entered the bank at about 10:05 a.m., walked to the teller counter, and demanded money from the teller. Police did not say whether the man was armed, but initial radio dispatch reports indicated that the man did not display a weapon while inside the bank.
Police did not say how much money the robber stole.
The suspect is described as a white male, 25 to 30 years old, between 5' 5" and 6' tall, with light-colored facial hair, but no mustache. He was wearing a red hat with a gold emblem on the brim, dark colored pants, black shoes and a hooded sweatshirt. Surveillance photographs show the man wearing a grey sweatshirt with black stripes and a black and white skull inside a shield-like emblem on the front. The words "Death Rock" appear in a banner over the skull.
The Times Herald noted that the description of the suspect is similar to that issued by police for a suspect in a bank robbery in Lower Providence Township last week.
Witnesses or those with other information that may help authorities are asked to call State Trooper Barry Bertolet at 610-410-7844 or the Skippack Barracks of the Pennsylvania State Police at 610-584-1250.
