Needham Police report the TD Bank branch at 89 Highland Ave. was held up around 4:15 p.m. yesterday by a guy who actually put a mask on. Recent years have seen a decline in the number of bank robbers who bother to disguise their faces.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, six-foot-one, weighing 175 lbs. He was wearing black pants with a white stripe on the leg, black sneakers with a red Nike logo and a light gray zip-up style jacket with a black stripe on the sleeve. He was also wearing a tan color mask that resembled a thermal covering.
The suspect fled on foot toward the Newton town line. An undetermined amount of U.S. currency was taken.
No weapon was shown, but the suspect uttered threats to tellers and kept a hand hidden inside a bag.
