Law enforcement is trying to identify the man who allegedly robbed a Parsippany NJ bank.
The bank robbery occurred a short time after 3:30 p.m. at the Santander Bank on Route 10 in Parsippany, New Jersey. According to Morris County officials, the suspect entered the building, approached a teller, and demanded cash.
The suspect allegedly brandished a firearm and threatened to shoot the worker.
Once the suspect got an undisclosed amount of money, he reportedly ran from the building and fled the area on foot. Parsippany cops later canvassed the area and tried to locate the suspect, but they could not find him.
The Parsippany Troy-Hills Police Department, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are investigating the bank robbery and attempting to identify the suspect.
Police have released video images of the suspect as he enters the bank building while wearing a construction hat, sunglasses, and gloves.
If detectives can identify and capture the suspect, he will likely face armed robbery charges and criminal weapons charges.
