Robber Sought in Phoenixville Federal Bank Incident

No one was injured Wednesday morning during a robbery of Phoenixville Federal Bank and Trust, Sgt. Joseph Nemic of the Phoenixville Police Department confirmed Wednesday afternoon. The robbery was carried out by one man, who remains at large.

According to Nemic, sometime before 10:35 a.m., a white male entered the 120 Main Street branch and demanded cash from a teller at the bank's counter. Though he didn't display a gun, he suggested he was armed. The teller handed the man an undisclosed amount of cash and he left the bank headed southbound. He was in and out of the bank, according to police, in less than a minute.

None of the half-dozen employees in the bank at the time, or the two customers, were injured.

According to surveillance footage police acquired from the bank, the robber is roughly 6 feet tall and has a thin build. His face was obscured from witnesses and surveillance footage by a pair of sunglasses and a hooded sweatshirt.
