MERIDEN — A robbery suspect is being sought by police after hitting a busy local bank on Friday.
Meriden Police responded to reports of a bank robbery after alarms were sounded at the TD Bank branch, located at 733 East Main Street, late that afternoon.
Employees told detectives on scene that a male suspect, likely between 50 and 60 years old and wearing a hat with sunglasses, had entered the bank a few minutes prior. He walked up to the front counter and demanded cash with a note on a deposit slip, to which a teller complied.
The unknown male assailant fled with an undisclosed amount of the bank’s money. It is unclear whether he left the scene on foot or in a vehicle. It is also undetermined which direction he fled in, or where his likely whereabouts may be at this point.
Police say the suspect implied that he was carrying either a concealed firearm or blade during the incident. Despite the suggestive actions, the suspect did not present a weapon at any time during the robbery.
If anyone has information that could reveal the identity of the male suspect depicted in the photos released by police, you are asked to contact Detective Wagner of the Meriden Police Department at (203) 630-6334.
