Update: Stolen vehicle linked to robbery
Two armed men are on the loose, after robbing a People's United Bank this morning and using a vehicle, stolen yesterday, as a getaway car.
Around 9:15 Friday morning, two armed men robbed the bank at 4180 Madison Ave., The two men displayed handguns and demanded cash from the drawers, jumping over the teller counters.
Both had their faces covered by masks and were wearing gloves. They left in a grey Ford Fusion that had been stolen yesterday in a carjacking from the Trumbull Marriott.
“This stolen vehicle was found immediately after the bank robbery, parked nearby in the Trumbull Mall, where it was set on fire,” police said. “All suspects fled the area in two other vehicles that were waiting nearby in the mall parking lot. One is a small white pick-up truck, an older model year, similar to a Chevrolet S-10; the second is a newer black or dark colored Jeep Cherokee with dark tinted windows. Both went southerly on Madison Avenue into Bridgeport.”
The men took an undetermined amount of cash. There were no injuries reported or shots fired, police said.
Trumbull Police detectives are investigating the robbery with assistance from the FBI and various other local police agencies.
