Making a withdrawal

On Friday, July 20, at around 3:15 p.m., police responded to a reported robbery at Santander Bank at 575 Boylston St.

Upon arrival, the officer spoke to a greeter at the bank, who said she observed the male suspect outside the bank, pacing back and forth and peering inside. He entered the bank, walked past the greeter and approached a teller’s window before handing the teller a note. When the teller asked the suspect if he had a bag, he grabbed the note back.

The suspect then approached another teller, pushed a customer she was attending to out of the way and handed over a note stating that he had a gun and wanted all small bills and no dye-pack. The note further stated that no one would get hurt if the teller handed the note back to the suspect within 30 seconds.

The teller handed over approximately $3,100 cash to the suspect, who then fled the bank.
