The Bensalem Township Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a bank robber with images of the suspect from the scene. At 3:50 p.m. Thursday, a man entered the Wells Fargo on Horizon Boulevard and drove off with an unknown amount of cash.
Video surveillance clearly shows the suspect handing a note to the bank teller, and making a successful heist within a few minutes. The robber is armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
While he never showed a handgun, police say the same man is responsible for several robberies in the surrounding area. At some of those other thefts, he allegedly did reveal a firearm.
Footage shows the suspect is a black male with facial hair who wore a black baseball cap. He also donned a red shirt, dark pants, and white sneakers.
“Please look at these photographs and video carefully.” Bensalem Police said in a press release. “We need to get this criminal off of the street now before he hurts someone.”
Authorities also identified the suspect’s vehicle as a black Hyundai Veloster. It has a temporary paper tag on the back window and a front license plate. The front plate may be a car dealership advertisement plate or a labor union plate.
The robber fled the area traveling onto Rockhill Drive towards Neshaminy Boulevard, according to police. He almost struck several cars on the roadway while escaping.
Anyone who sees this vehicle on the roadways should immediately call 9-1-1.
