Bank robber made getaway on bicycle with broken chain

Police in St. Louis, Missouri, have released surveillance images of a man who robbed a north city bank earlier this week. A spokesperson for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department says the suspect entered the Commerce Bank shortly before 9:30am on Monday.

He handed a teller a piece of paper demanding money. The suspect's hand remained inside his pocket, leading the teller to believe he was armed. He did not show a weapon.


After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect ran across Natural Bridge, down an alley, and hopped on a bicycle that appeared to have a broken chain. Police describe the suspect as a black male between 30 and 35-years-old.

He stands between 6 feet and 6 feet, two inches tall and weighs between 220 and 250 pounds. He has a beard, and was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap, blue jeans, and a white t-shirt underneath a dark hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect should call CrimeStoppers.
