New photos released from last month's robbery at a Rochester credit union
The Rochester Police Department on Tuesday released new surveillance images from an armed robbery last month at a local credit union.
The robbery happened on June 19 around 2:30 p.m. at Affinity Plus Credit Union, located off 55th Street in northwest Rochester. According to police, the suspect handed a teller a note and ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect allegedly told the teller he had a gun. However, it's unclear whether he was actually armed.
Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic or mixed race male, about 6 feet tall, with a slim build and broad shoulders. Police estimate the man is about 25 years old. He was wearing a large mustache that was "likely fake."
Investigators on Tuesday also released more info on the possible getaway car:
As a result of reviewing area video, the robbery suspect can be seen walking west along the south side of Kwik Trip just prior to the robbery. After the robbery, the suspect runs north across 55th Street NW. A green, late 1990’s, Ford Taurus or Contour was seen speeding out of the Wal-Mart parking lot on the day of the robbery, but it is unknown if that vehicle was involved. It is likely that the suspect ran to a vehicle in the neighborhood directly north of Wal-Mart. Citizens may have taken note of this person and/or this vehicle and found it to be suspicious or odd at the time, but did not make the connection to the bank robbery.
If anyone has any information that might be related to this robbery, please contact Investigator Weber at 507-328-6922.
