The FBI and Cheltenham police are seeking the public’s help in finding a skinny black man in his late 20s or early 30s who held up a bank in Glenside at mid-morning Friday, Jan. 6.

Officers were called at 10:30 a.m. to the Conestoga Bank at 12 W. Glenside Ave. for a robbery in progress.

The man entered the bank and handed the teller a demand note that said: “50, 100 or I will start shooting."

No weapon was displayed. The suspect then fled the area on foot with $1,900. Officers combed the area using K-9 units, but the man got away.

The suspect was described by police as tall and thin, with a mustache. He wore large rimmed sunglasses, a dark hooded sweatshirt pulled tight to his face, blue jeans, and black shoes.

Anyone with information may call the FBI at 215-418-4000, or Cheltenham detectives at 215-885-1600 extension 499.
