Original Story:

West Hartford Police are still on the scene of a bank robbery that occurred Friday morning at the Webster Bank branch at 75 Park Rd.

According to West Hartford Police Sgt. Michael Alquist, the robbery was reported at 11:25 a.m. The robber, who was reportedly not armed, presented the teller with a note and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, Alquist said.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 6′ tall, with a mustache, wearing a black jacket over a brown hooded sweatshirt. He was wearing a University of North Carolina baseball hat with a “Carolina blue” top and a black brim, Alquist said.

No one was injured in the robbery. Details about how the suspect fled the scene are not currently available.
