UPDATE: A lone male robbed the TD BankNorth branch in Westport’s Saugatuck area today, police said.
The robbery occurred shortly before 4 p.m. at the branch at 50 Charles St., detectives said.
The man, described as a heavy set white or Hispanic male, approximately 6 feet tall, was wearing a dark knit hat, gray hooded sweatshirt with dark hood and sleeves, and denim pants, police said.
They said he passed a note indicating he had a weapon but did not show one. The teller turned over an undetermined amount of cash and the suspect then fled the scene, according to police.
The suspect fled the scene driving a gray or silver SUV, possibly a Dodge Durango. The suspect fled in the direction of I-95 Exit 17. A car stopped later on I-95 in Greenwich matching the description did not turn out to contain the suspect, detectives said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Westport Police Department at 203-341-6000.
