Man wanted for trying to rob bank branch on Saturday

The FBI and Philadelphia Police Violent Crimes Task Force is asking for help to identify and find the man who tried to rob a BB&T Bank branch in Kensington on Saturday.

Authorities released three photos from security cameras at the bank, in the 2300 block of E. York Street.

They say at about 9:36am, the man "entered the bank and showed several demand notes to a teller. Shortly thereafter, the subject fled the bank empty-handed. He hopped on a bicycle and was last seen pedaling west on York Street."

The suspect is described as about 5'8" to 5'10" tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, light-colored pants, black and white gloves, a black ski mask, and a black backpack.

He is considered armed and dangerous.
