Vt. bank robbed by suspect on bicycle
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont police searching for a suspect who robbed a South Burlington bank believe he fled the scene of the robbery on a bicycle.
Just before 5 p.m. Thursday, a suspect went into the Peoples United Bank on Dorset Street and showed a handgun before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.
South Burlington Police Chief Trevor Whipple says the suspect is described as a slender black male between 6-feet and 6-feet-2 inches tall with a "sleeve type" tattoo on his right arm.
Video surveillance at the bank showed the suspect arriving on a bicycle. Police now believe he fled on a bicycle.
It was the third time since November that the bank has been targeted.
