Suspect Sought for State Street Bank Robbery

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are looking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a bank robbery suspect.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, a man walked into the United Bank at 115 State Street and approached the counter.

Delaney adds that the suspect asked the teller to “give it up” and implied that he had a weapon. He then took an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot east on State Street.
