Second Washington Trust Robbed in Two Day Period

Cranston Police are looking for another bank robber who struck a Washington Trust branch this week.

Cranston Police are investigating another bank robbery at a local Washington Trust after a man walked into the Plainfield Pike branch yesterday afternoon with a cap, glasses and a colorful scarf and handed a teller a note stating "this is a robbery."

Cranston Police Capt. Sean Carmody said in a release that the suspect walked into the bank at around 12:04 p.m. and left with an undetermined amount of cash after passing the note, fleeing in a four-door sedan.

The man is described as white and standing about five-and-a-half feet tall. He was wearing a brown and cream-colored jacket, a yellow, green and red scarf, off-white baseball cap and black gloves. The scarf partially obscured his face, which reportedly had some facial hair.

Cranston detectives conducted interviews with bank employees and witnesses and crime scene investigators are examining evidence from the scene, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Robert Lindsay of Cranston Police at 401-477-5142.
