The suspect has been described as a black male in his mid-30s standing about 6’1”. Authorities say he has a medium build, dark complexion and facial hair.

The latest incident occurred Tuesday at a Citizens Bank on East Road in Glenside, Montgomery County. According to police, the suspect approached the teller and handed over a demand note. The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the bank on foot. He was last seen heading southeast toward Bickley Road.
