UPDATE: Medford Police Seeking Bank Robbery Suspect

Suspect sought in East Cambridge Savings Bank robbery from last Thursday.

UPDATE, 9:30 a.m.: Medford Police Capt. Kevin Faller said the robbery suspect showed a black handgun during the incident and got away on a bicycle with an undetermined amount of cash.

Faller said the robbery took place at the 243 Salem St. East Cambridge Savings Bank location last Thursday at approximately 4:40 p.m. According to Faller, the suspect was wearing a full ski mask, making it difficult to provide a full description.

The suspect is a white male standing about 5-feet, 8-inches tall, Faller said.

He walked into the bank, according to Faller, showing the handgun while passing a note to a female teller. Faller said the suspect took the note with him.

"He ordered her to give him the money and no one would get hurt," Faller said, adding the teller put the money in a plastic bag.

Faller said the teller did not get a full look at the note but it specifically mentioned "no dye pack."

After robbing the bank, Faller said the suspect got on a "mountain-style bicycle" and left the area heading in the direction of Court Street.

Medford detectives are investigating the case with the assistance of the FBI bank robbery task force, Faller said.
