Man Robs Bank on Binghamton’s West Side
Binghamton police are trying to find the robber who made off with cash in a heist at a West Side bank.
Authorities say the incident happened at the Citizens Bank branch at 247 Main Street.
Detective Captain John Ryan said a white man wearing dark clothing entered the bank around 10:25 a.m. Saturday. The robber handed a note to a teller demanding cash.
Ryan said the suspect left the bank on foot. He was last seen walking west on Main Street from Helen Street.
Police did not detail the contents of the note used by the robber. Ryan said no weapon was displayed and there were no injuries in the incident.
The suspect was believed to be about five feet, four inches tall. He wore dark sunglasses and a dark scarf to hide his face.
There was no apparent connection with a bank robbery that occurred on Binghamton's East Side last month.
In that January 10 incident, a man robbed the M&T Bank branch at 149 Robinson Street. The suspect in that robbery ran to a getaway car that had been parked a short distance from the bank.
People who have information about the bank robberies may contact the Binghamton police Detective Division at 607.772.7080.
