A man who was using a Bank of America ATM in Hellertown Wednesday afternoon was the victim of what borough police are describing as a "strong-arm robbery."
Hellertown Police said the robbery occurred at approximately 5:35 p.m. outside the bank branch at 5 Main St. and the suspected robber got away on what they said was a stolen bicycle.
Police said the man believed to be the perpetrator—who was captured on bank surveillance—is black, 18 to 35 years old and approximately 5'10" to 6'2" with a medium to large build.
He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a yellow T-shirt, dark shorts and black and white sneakers.
"The suspect snatched the wallet as the victim was putting $80 cash into it," police said.
He then fled north on Route 412 on a gray Mongoose bicycle, which police said was stolen near the scene of the robbery.
Anyone with information about the incident or the robber's identity is asked to contact Investigator Michael Dattillio of the Hellertown Police Department at 610-838-7040 ext. 107 or the Northampton County 911 Center at 610-759-2200.
