Yesterday, I received the following email from reader Sasha:
"I was wondering if you'd heard anything about what I THINK was a robbery at the Investor's Bank on Court Street yesterday. I saw police putting up crime scene tape outside and overheard some men from the neighborhood talking about how someone wasn't hurt (I didn't catch her name) and that he (or they) apparently came in five minutes before closing. I tried Googling, but it hasn't brought up any news."
Does anyone know what happened on Wednesday evening? Investors Bank opened at this location in November 2013.
Yesterday, reader Ed confirmed on PMFA's Facebook page that the incident reported above definitely involved a robbery. He wrote:
"It was Wednesday around 6pm. One man in a ski mask. There were only 3 or 4 bank employees there; no security guard. Emilia's salon next door has a camera on the outside, and the police are looking at the images, but he didn't take off the mask right away so they don't have any facial image."
