Cleveland police, FBI search for man who robbed Citizens Bank - cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Local and federal authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a Cleveland bank Friday afternoon.

A man entered Citizens Bank on the 15000 block of Puritas Avenue in Cleveland’s Bellaire-Puritas neighborhood about 2:40 p.m. Friday, FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said in a news release.

The man approached a teller and presented a note demanding money, Anderson said. The teller handed over an unknown amount of cash.

The man ran out of the bank and through the parking lot toward West 150th Street and Puritas Avenue, Anderson said. He may have gotten into the driver’s side of a white van.

He is about 20 to 30 years old, stands about 5-feet 6- or 7-inches and has a thin build, Anderson said. He was wearing a dark hoodie and a black Ohio State ski hat.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call the Cleveland Division of the FBI at 216-522-1400 or the Cleveland Division of Police at 216-623-5000.

Reward money is available for the successful identification and prosecution of the person responsible, Anderson said. Tips can remain anonymous.
