According to police radio the suspect is a white male, short dark hair, 25-30 years old, olive complexion with a black sweatshirt and jeans. He fled in a black Infinity sedan, possibly a G35, with tinted windows onto Rt. 34 South and then Rt. 18 North. He showed a gun and threatened to shoot the teller so he's definitely dangerous.

When's the last time someone got away with this crime? The criminal mind must be a very small one.
Vincent Scanelli February 22, 2013 at 05:41 PM
no camera's in the lot ? wonder if he had a permit for that gun ? if all the tellers and customers had guns I don't think he would have robbed the bank

I might be crazy but, this guy looks like a guy who drives around in the same car at Saw Creek Estates in PA. I'll have to keep an eye out.

Looking at his photo, I'd be more inclined to describe him as a hispanic male rather than a white male.
Willa Dios February 22, 2013 at 06:22 PM
I don't think he looks Hispanic at all. His features appear to be more Middle-Eastern to me.
fed up February 22, 2013 at 07:53 PM
I agree, he is not white. Maybe hispanic or indian or pakistan or like Holmdel Girl says middle-eastern. Did anyone notice his expression? He does not look the least bit nervous. He actually looks very confident. When was the last time a bank was held up and the person was not caught? Someone will drop a dime on him. this photo is pretty clear.

I'm sure that most employers not allow thei employees to carry guns at work if NJ allowed them to carry.I worked for a nation wide company,with offices in rught to carry states,and this waw 1 of their rules.Carrying a gun anywhere on company property,pernit or not,resulted in being fired.

Pretty brazen not wearing some kind of hat or disguise. He'll be caught.
John February 22, 2013 at 11:38 PM
He was wearing a disguise. The Ambiguous Country of Origin Disguise.
Dawn P February 22, 2013 at 11:49 PM

carolynne sehn February 22, 2013 at 11:56 PM
