FBI Offers $10,000 Reward for Information Leading to the Arrest of Somerville Bank Robbery Suspect

The FBI Boston Violent Crimes Task Force and the Somerville Police Department are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of a bank robber who is considered to be armed and dangerous.

On Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at approximately 9:57 a.m., the unknown male subject entered Middlesex Federal Savings Bank, 1 College Ave., in Davis Square in Somerville, Massachusetts, and allegedly committed an armed robbery.

The suspect wore a blue beanie, a dark glove on his left hand, and a hooded camouflage jacket featuring a Nike logo on the left side above his chest. He wore blue jeans, black sneakers, and carried a black and red backpack.

The suspect entered the bank holding a revolver, fired one round into the ceiling and demanded money from the teller. After a uniformed Somerville police officer in the vicinity of Davis Square was alerted to a possible bank robbery in progress, the officer entered the bank and the suspect allegedly fired a round at the responding officer before fleeing the bank on foot.

The suspect is believed to be a light skinned male in his 30s. He is approximately 5'7' to 5'11' in height, weighs approximately 175 pounds, and has a medium build.

The public is being asked to review a video of the suspect below; addition information and images can be found on the related Wanted poster.
