‘Nervous’ Bank Robber On The Run In Paramus

A bank robber is on the loose in Paramus.

Police said the suspect entered the Valley National Bank in the Bergen Town Center shortly after 3 p.m. Monday and demanded a teller to give him hundreds or fifties, or he would shoot and kill everyone.

The teller told the suspect she only had small bills. He then approached a second teller making the same demands, before fleeing after she gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.

A weapon was never displayed and the tellers said the suspect appeared very nervous, police said.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’7” to 5’10” tall, in his late thirties to early forties, with well-groomed, short dark brown or black hair, possibly with a touch of gray. He was wearing khaki pants, and a white t-shirt under a blue and white plaid shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Paramus Police Department Detective Bureau at 201.262.3400 x 553.

    Tellers are told that if they’re asked for the money, just hand it over. No arguing, no challenging, no heroics. Just because you don’t see a gun doesn’t mean he doesn’t have one and you don’t want to take the chance that he might be crazy or desperate enough to actually go through with it. besides, the bank is insured and he WILL get caught. When was the last time you heard of a bank robber who didn’t eventully get busted? That’a what video surveillance is allegedly for.
