Police say that at around 12:40 p.m., officers responded to the Bank of America, at 250 Sargent Drive, for the report of a bank robbery.
Police said a man handed a bank teller a note, acted as if he had a weapon, and took an undisclosed amount of money.
The robber left the bank in a minivan, which police said have found on Rosette Street a short time later.
Police described the robber as a Hispanic man in his early 40s who is around 5′ 8” and has dark hair. He was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt and gray sweater.
There is no word on if anyone was injured or if the suspect had a weapon during the robbery.
Officers are still on scene gathering information.
Police said the Connecticut Bankers Reward Association is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the robbery suspect’s arrest.
Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to contact detectives at 203-946-6304.
