The Citibank branch at 399 Post Rd. West was robbed by a knife-wielding man at around 1 p.m. Friday.
In a news release, Westport Police Capt. Sam Arciola said the suspect brandished a knife with a black handle and passed a note to a teller demanding money.
After being handed cash, the man fled the bank on foot west toward Norwalk.
The bandit was described as a black male approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a long black trench-style coat, blue hat with orange writing, clean shaven, in his late 30’s to early 40’s, with a muscular upper-body build.
Arciola said the man’s coat and other evidence were located about a mile away at the intersection of Sylvan Road North and Marion Road. Based on the location of the evidence, it appears the suspect had a vehicle, he said.
Police are processing images from the bank’s surveillance cameras that which will be made public when they become available.
Anyone who witnessed the suspect leaving the scene is asked to call Westport detectives at (203) 341-6080.
