Police: Worcester Bank Robber Altered Skin Color

WORCESTER (CBS) – Police are looking for a man who held up the Sovereign Bank on Park Avenue in Worcester.

Workers told investigators that the man walked in, handed the clerk a note, and threatened that he had a gun.

He made off with a wad of cash.

Officers say that, based on surveillance and interviews by witnesses, it appears the suspect had applied something to try and change his skin tone so he would look different.

Worcester police are asking anyone with information to text (TIPWPD and your message) to 274637, post it at on their website, or call.
