The latest robbery happened Tuesday morning at the Citizens Bank branch located at 139 South Easton Road in Glenside, Montgomery County. The man approached a teller and presented a demand note. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, he fled the area of the bank on foot. He was last seen heading southeast toward Bickley Road.

On June 18, he had on a black hooded sweatshirt with a white dream catcher and the words, "NATIVE AMERICAN" on the front, a white t-shirt, blue jeans, black and white Nike sneakers, dark-colored Phillies cap with a white "P", and a dark-colored glove on one hand.

On June 20, he was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, red baseball cap, and latex or plastic gloves.
He is described as a black male in his mid-30s, approximately 6 feet tall, medium build, dark complexion, with facial hair. On Tuesday morning, he was wearing a dark-colored, long-sleeve shirt, dark-colored pants, white gloves, white and black sneakers, and a dark-colored baseball cap with a white Calvin Klein "ck" logo on the front.

This man is considered armed and dangerous.
