Paramus police released surveillance photos Monday of a man who robbed a Route 17 bank on Friday wearing a hooded “Planned Parenthood” sweatshirt.
The robber handed a teller at the Citibank on the northbound highway a note shortly before 2 p.m. that said to “hand over the money or [he] would begin shooting,” Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said.
The teller gave the robber nearly $5,000 in cash, Ehrenberg said.
The bandit then ran toward the Fashion Center parking lot, he said.
No weapon was shown.
Ehrenberg described the robber as black, between 40 and 50 years old and roughly 200 pounds, with white stubble on his neck.
Besides the gray hoodie, he wore light-colored pants, tan boots, a blue knit cap and black gloves, the chief said.
Anyone who has information that could help identify him is asked to call Paramus PD: (201) 262-3400.
