A man thought to be around 50 years of age, wearing a jean jacket and with grey-blonde hair, walked into the bank at 111 Fourth Avenue, near 12th Street, and left with an unknown amount of money, according to one of the responding officers, Alan Tagliamonti. “The suspect fled immediately,” he said. Investigators were still trying to determine the amount stolen when The Local arrived on the scene around 1:30 p.m.
