Would-be bank robber had gun and mask, but what he needed was a watch

A MASKED MAN attempted to rob Citizens Bank on Brown Avenue Friday morning. He only got has far as the interior doors, however, because he was about five minutes too early. The bank had yet to open, police said. 

MANCHESTER - Police said a masked man tried to rob Citizens Bank on Brown Avenue early Friday morning but failed because the bank had yet to open.

Sgt. Craig Rousseau said the robber entered the vestibule of the bank, located at 2035 Brown Ave., a few minutes before 9 a.m. and found the interior doors locked because the bank , which opens at 9 o'clock, had yet to open.

The robber, who had a red ski mask covering his face, banged on the doors with a black semi-automatic handgun, yelling for employees to open them.

When he figured out they were not going to let him in, he ran out and towards the back of the bank, Rousseau said.

Police are looking for a white man, about 5-foot-9, 190 to 200 pounds. He was wearing the mask, a dark jacket and yellow gloves. He also had a backpack with a white stripe on it.

Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to call police at 668-8711 or, to remain anonymous, Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040.
