Police are looking for a man who robbed the TD Bank in Avon at gunpoint Sunday afternoon and have released a surveillance image of the suspect.
The man entered the 255 West Main Street bank along Route 44 at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday and displayed a black handgun. He then took off in a black SUV with an unknown amount of cash, police said.
Avon police responded to the bank, which is located in the same busy plaza as Walmart and Big Y, and the case remains under investigation. The plaza is off of Route 44, which is a highly traveled state road.
A family member of the bank teller working at the time of the armed robbery told NBC Connecticut that the teller is shaken but otherwise doing fine.
Police said the bank robber was wearing jeans, a sweatshirt with the hood over his head, a tan-rimmed baseball cap and a dark bandana concealing his face. His getaway car was described to police as an "unusual looking, top heavy black SUV" and police said it likely was last headed in the eastbound direction on Route 44.
No arrests have been made at this time and police have not identified the name of the suspected bank robber.
Police released a still image from bank surveillance video footage showing the suspect and ask anyone with information to call Det. jason Reid at 860-409-4232.
