TD Bank on East Main Street Robbed for Second Time in 6 Months

A masked man, who kept his hand in his jacket pocket, walked into the Meriden bank and demanded money from tellers, police said Tuesday evening.

Meriden Police are searching for a masked man who allegedly robbed the city's East Side branch of TD Bank Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to a report of a bank robbery at TD Bank at 733 East Main St., at about 4:36 p.m. Tuesday.

A masked man, who kept his hand in his jacket pocket, walked into the bank and demanded money from tellers, police spokesman Det. Lt. Mark Walerysiak said in a statement Tuesday evening.

The man made off with an undisclosed amount of money and fled through a back door. No injuries were reported.

The suspect, pictured, is a thin white man, approximately 5 foot 4 inches tall, with bright blue eyes, police said. He was wearing a gray hooded jacket pulled over his head and a black mask over his nose that obscured most of the man's face.

The man never showed a weapon or threatened to have one. Police reportedly found evidence of the crime on nearby Wilson Street.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Meriden Police Dept. 203-630-6201 or Det. Tom Burke at 203-630-6219.

This is the that this location has been robbed in similar circumstances.

On June 13, 2011, a white male in a black bandana and gloves made off with an undisclosed amount of money after 4 p.m.. He reportedly told a teller he had a weapon, but never showed it, and also exited through the bank's back door.

Reached Tuesday night, Burke said police are not sure if the crimes are connected.
