NP Police desperate for help finding bank robber

NORTH PROVIDENCE – The North Providence Police Department is asking again for assistance from the public in their efforts to find a man who robbed the Citizens Bank located at 1090 Charles St. in February. Officers have been unable to identify the suspect "and have exhausted all investigative techniques," according to a press release.

The bank was robbed on Thursday, Feb. 28, at approximately 11:56 p.m. A white male wearing a red Boston Red Sox knit hat, gray hooded sweatshirt and tan pants walked into the bank, handed the teller a note demanding money, and told the teller, "no dye packs." The suspect then brandished a knife, according to police. The teller complied and the man fled on foot with the money. The suspect exited the bank and ran north toward Remmington Street.

The man was described as being of medium build, about five feet, seven inches tall, and in his mid-20s to early 30s.

Anyone with information about the identity of the robber is asked to contact Det. Lt. David Drezek, investigator on the case, by calling 401-231-4533, ext. 111.
