Police in Camden County are looking for a suspected bank robber who also performs as an 'ultraviolent' wrestler.

30-year-old Nicholas Wilson, who performs under the nickname "Nick Gage," is being sought for the December 22nd robbery of a PNC Bank branch at 862 Haddon Avenue in Collingswood, New Jersey.

At about 1:40 p.m., police say Wilson entered the bank and gave a teller a note which demanded she give him money or he would shoot her.

The teller handed over $3,000 in cash and then, police say, Wilson left the bank on foot.

Wilson is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall, heavy set with a beard.

Wilson's last known address is Lakeshore Drive in Camden.?

While he has not yet been apprehended, the prosecutor's office says Wilson has been charged with second degree robbery with bail set at $150,000 cash.

Anyone with information on Wilson's whereabouts is asked to call Sgt. William Townsend of the Camden County Prosecutor's Office at 856-225-8400 or Detective Frank Lee of the Collingswood Police Department at 856-854-2401.

Wilson, as Nick Gage, has a profile page on the website for "Combat Zone Wrestling." The site posted a statement reading:

Combat Zone Wrestling, LLC has no direct knowledge of any alleged wrong doings by Nick Gage. We firmly discourage any fans from emulating any of the actions alleged. We also hope that if these accusations are true that Nick will turn himself over to authorities.
