The FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force reports a man wearing a "Breaking News" sweatshirt robbed the Berkshire Bank branch at 1320 Washington St. in the South End at gunpoint yesterday morning.
According to the FBI, the man walked into the branch around 9:10 a.m. and went up to a teller:
UNSUB ["unknown subject"] brandished a black semiautomatic firearm in a threatening manner, and handed the teller a blue "hard hat" style construction cap along with a demand note. The teller handed the UNSUB an unknown amount of US currency. The UNSUB took back the hard hat, and fled the bank on foot.
He's described as black, about 5'7" with a medium build, wearing a dark bandana/scarf over his head, black sunglasses, what appeared to be tape over his nose, a white sweatshirt with the words “BREAKING NEWS" on the front, blue jeans, black gloves with white writing on them and work boots.
