Bank robbed in Meriden, police ask for public assistance


MERIDEN — Police are asking for public assistance to identify the suspect who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank on East Main Street Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded about 4 p.m. to the 820 E. Main St. bank, said Sgt. Darrin McKay, the police spokesman.

A man approached a teller and handed over a note demanding money, McKay said. The teller complied with the demands and the robber fled on foot before police arrived. No weapon was displayed.

The suspect is described as black, between 30 and 40 years old, about 6 feet tall with a heavy build, McKay said. He was wearing a bright yellow shirt with a black baseball cap.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective John Femia at (203) 630-6250.
