The Philadelphia Police Department and the FBI are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subjects responsible for the robbery of the Beneficial Bank branch located at 826 E. Allegheny Avenue earlier today.
At approximately 11:42 a.m., the two subjects entered the bank. While one subject stayed at the entrance door, the other subject approached the teller counter and presented a threatening demand note to teller. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the two subjects fled the area of the bank on foot in an unknown direction.
The first subject is described as a black or Hispanic male with a light complexion, mid 20s, 5’10” to 5’11” tall, thin build, with a black beard, wearing a tan zippered jacket. This is the subject who stayed at the door. The second subject, who presented the threatening demand note, is described as black or Hispanic male in his mid 20s, 5’7” to 5’8” tall, 160 pounds, clean shaven, wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and cargo shorts. Either or both of the subjects may have dye stains on their skin and/or clothing.
Pictures from the bank’s security cameras are below. These subjects are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police Department or the FBI at 215-418-4000. There may be a reward for information leading to these subjects’ capture, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
