 A Fairfield County man has been charged in connection with a September bank robbery.

Eliezer Negron, of Bridgeport, was arrested on Monday, Nov. 29 for a robbery at the Fairfield County in Norwalk on Tuesday, Sept. 21, Sgt. Sofia Gulino, of the Norwalk Police Department said.

According to Gulino, Negron walked into the bank around 1:30 p.m., wearing a hard hat and a mask resembling a tiger's mouth, and demanded money, and intimated he was armed.
