FBI Philadelphia May 24, 2013

The Philadelphia Police Department and the FBI are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for the attempted robbery today of the Bank of America branch located at 2439 Welsh Road in Northeast Philadelphia.

At approximately 11:35 a.m., the subject entered the bank and handed a teller a demand note. The subject eventually fled the area of the bank without obtaining any money.

This subject is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about these robberies or this subject is urged to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Philadelphia Police Department. There may be a reward for information leading to this subject’s capture; tipsters can remain anonymous.
