Nutley police search for suspect who held up Commerce Bank Sunday

Police say suspect was a Black man who fled in black car

NUTLEY — Police and the FBI need your help finding a suspect who is believed to have held up a Commerce Bank on Kingsland Street Sunday afternoon at around 2:25.

Detective Lt. Steven Rogers, of the Nutley police Detective Bureau, says the suspect, described as a black man, around 45 years old, wearing a white fisherman’s hat and glasses, entered the bank Sunday afternoon with a note that demanded money. Rogers says the teller gave the suspect an unknown amount of cash. The suspect, who was unarmed, then fled, in an unknown direction, in a black car.

At present, the Nutley Police Department is investigating the matter along with the FBI, according to Rogers. He says both agencies are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage to get a better description and picture of the suspect.

No one was injured during the holdup, Rogers said.

Rogers urges anyone who was near the bank Sunday at around 2:25 p.m. — and who might have seen the suspect — to call the Detective Bureau immediately at 973-284-4940.
