Repeat robber accused of striking same bank, 2 Sundays straight

- The bank is open for customers on Sundays but this Sunday and also last week, one TD Bank branch in Center City Philadelphia was robbed. Now, authorities say they think the guy who did it is a serial bank robber who has robbed other banks before.

Philadelphia police and the FBI say the robber walked into the TD Bank branch at 111 S. 11th Street, near Jefferson Hospital, at about 12:48pm.

He showed a demand note to a teller, got an undisclosed amount of cash, and escaped the area.

The same man is accused of robbing the same TD Bank branch exactly a week ago, on Sept. 4.

Plus, he’s wanted for the Aug. 19 attempted robbery of the Citizens Bank branch at 6201 N. 5th Street; and the robbery 40 minutes later of the Hyperion Bank branch at 199 W. Girard Avenue. (See pictures from three of the four robberies above.)

Again, authorities are asking for help finding this man. He’s described as in his 40s, about 5’8” to 5’9” tall, with a medium build, and scraggly black and gray beard.

In this latest robbery, police say he was wearing a white, blue, and gray striped short-sleeve shirt, tan cargo shorts, thick-rimmed eyeglasses, a black bucket hat, and a red and white hospital/medical wristband.

The man is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI at 215-418-4000, or Philadelphia police by calling 215-686-TIPS (8477), texting a tip to PPDTIP (773847), or clicking here to submit a tip anonymously.

They say there’s a reward for information leading to his capture and tipsters can remain anonymous.
