Police are investigating a robbery Saturday morning at the Chase Bank on Saddle River Road
Fair Lawn Police are investigating a robbery Saturday morning at the Chase Bank on Saddle River Road.
A man entered the bank around 10 a.m. and handed the teller a note that read, “This is a robbery.” He made off with $3,400 in cash and fled north up Saddle River Road on foot, according to witnesses.
He did not produce a weapon, Sgt. Eric Leitman said.
The suspect is described as a 5’8” to 5'11” white male between the ages of 30 and 40 with a slender build, short dark hair and a scruffy mustache and goatee.
He was wearing a black baseball cap with light stitching depicting a bird surrounded by flames, and was dressed in a striped gray long sleeve polo shirt or raincoat, blue jeans and white sneakers, with a black watch on his left wrist, Leitman said.
The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting on the case, and the FBI has been notified.
Leitman said he did not know if this robbery was connected to another daytime bank robbery that occurred at the Chase Bank on Fair Lawn Avenue in July and remains unsolved. That case is now under the FBI’s jurisdiction.
