The Bensalem Police are looking for a man who robbed the Wells Fargo on Horizon Boulevard in Trevose with only a note Tuesday afternoon. Detectives are convinced someone knows him and are asking the public for help.
Video surveillance shows the suspect giving a note to an employee demanding money and threatening to shoot employees. The bank teller quickly complied and handed over a wad a cash.
Beginning at around 1:20 p.m., the entire incident only lasted a few minutes. After collecting his earnings, the suspect ran away towards Rockhill Drive.
Despite the note’s threat, the thief never drew a weapon. Using a note is a common tactic as standard procedures advise employees to cooperate.
Police say the man is about 5’6″, in his mid-30’s with a bit of facial hair on his chin. He was wearing a tan knit hat, black zip up jacket, dark pants and tan work boots.
Video of the robbery is below. Anyone who identifies the suspect should immediately contact the Bensalem Police Department at (215) 633-3719.
