MANCHESTER – Police are searching for a man who robbed Citizens Bank on Elm Street just after noon on Wednesday.

Police said the robber told a teller he had a weapon, although none was shown, and threatened to hurt both her and other customers. The teller handed him an undisclosed amount of cash and he fled the 875 Elm St. bank with it.

The robber is described as a clean shaven, 6-foot white man, 50 to 60 years old, weighing between 200 and 220 pounds. He wore a dark blue sweatshirt under a hooded, brown Carhartt jacket with a maroon and gray scarf wrapped around the collar. He also wore a black knit cap and khaki pants.

Patrol officers as well as police dogs searched the heavily traveled area but did not find the robber.

Police released a photo of the robber, recorded on the bank's video surveillance system.
