A robber, described as a light-skinned black man, was able to walk away with “several thousand dollars” in cash after he robbed a Hudson City Savings Bank this morning in Lyndhurst, police Capt. John Valente said.
Valente said the robbery took place at the Lewandowski St. branch of HCSB at around 10:04 a.m. when the suspect, who was wearing a dark sweatshirt and a Jets cap, handed a teller a grocery-store plastic bag and told the teller to fill it up with cash.
The suspect then fled on to Lewandowski St. on foot — though it was not immediately clear where he went thereafter, Valente said.
At no time did the suspect brandish a weapon or make threats, Valente said.
Valente said it’s possible this robbery is connected to several others at Hudson City Savings Banks in other towns, though he wasn’t able to say what towns specifically.
Lyndhurst detectives joined the FBI at the scene and questioned the tellers who were on duty at the time of the robbery, according to Valente.
The robbery remains under investigation, he said.
Anyone with information about the robbery should call the LPD at 201-939-2900.
