Police seek Portland bank robber

PORTLAND — A Nasons Corner bank was held up Tuesday morning and the robber remained at large.

Police said the man entered the Bangor Savings Bank at 1048 Brighton Ave. shortly after 9 a.m. and threatened a teller. He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the bank on foot, heading on Brighton Avenue toward Rand Road. Police said he may have gotten into a vehicle at that intersection.

No weapon was displayed and no one was injured, although several customers and employees were in the bank at the time.

The robber was described as a white man with a dark goatee, about 6 feet tall and with a medium build. He was wearing a dark knit cap, sunglasses and a black-and-gray sweatshirt printed with the words "ECKO 72."

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Portland Police Department at 874-8533.
