Wellesley police investigating bank robbery at Bank of America

The Wellesley Police Department reported that it received a 911 call just after 1pm on Monday afternoon from a Bank of America employee from the 35 Washington St., branch in Lower Falls. The caller indicated that a male party had just robbed the bank, and described the suspect as having a dark complexion, standing approximately 5’11” with a muscular build, and wearing a dark colored long sleeve shirt, sunglasses, a black baseball cap with a white oval shaped logo on it.   No weapon was shown.

The suspect reportedly fled the bank through the rear door on foot.  Witnesses reported that he entered a dark colored sedan on Ledyard Street, but did not know which way the vehicle went off.

Officers checked the area for the vehicle and suspect.   As a precautionary measure, students at nearby St. John’s Elementary School were asked to stay inside while officers examined the area with the assistance of the Massachusetts State Police K-9 unit.   The search was completed prior to the dismissal of school, and students were dismissed in the usual manner.

When photographs of the suspect become available they will be posted on WPD’s website www.wellesleypolice.com and Mass Most Wanted.
