Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Jeffrey R. Hale

Talleyville- Delaware State Police Robbery Unit detectives continue to investigate the robbery of a Wilmington area PNC bank which occurred last month and are still asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.

The investigation began on Monday, April 17, 2017, at approximately 4:30 p.m., as a male suspect (pictured) entered the PNC bank branch located at 4111 Concord Pike. The suspect then approached a male teller and presented him with a demand note for cash. The note implied that the suspect was armed, however, no weapon was displayed. The teller complied with the suspect’s demands and turned over an undisclosed amount of money to him. The suspect then exited the bank and fled in an unknown direction. There were no injuries.

On Friday, April 21, 2017, the same suspect is believed to have committed a similar robbery of the BB&T bank located at 1138 Town Square Road, North Coventry Township, PA.

The suspect was described as a black male. He was 25-30 years of age and approximately 6’00” tall with a thin build.

If anyone knows the identity of the pictured suspect or has any information in reference to this incident they are asked to contact Detective Brian McDerby at 302-365-8436 or Detective Timothy Prouty at 610-323-8360. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
