By David Greene
BRONX, NEW YORK, May 25- Police are looking for the gunman who robbed an E. Tremont Avenue bank, bringing the number incidents in the borough in the first five-months of 2012-- to 13.
In the latest incident, patrol units from the 48th Precinct were called to Banco Popular, located at 752 E. Tremont Avenue, at 10:30 a.m., on Friday, May 18.
Police would only say they were looking for the suspect armed with a gun, who fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.
The bank was closed for several hours as detectives looked at surveillance video and interviewed customers and bank employees.
The bank robbery is the latest in a rash of bank heists across the borough.
On Wednesday, May 16, a suspect described as a male Hispanic robbed the Emigrant Savings Bank at 101 E. 170 Street.
The NYPD had recently released a surveillance photo of a suspect wanted in connection with a hold-up at the HSBC Bank on West 235 Street in Riverdale, who took more than $3,000 on May 14.
The suspect in that case is described as a Black male in his 20s, who was wearing a fake beard and black baseball cap.
Police are still looking for the individuals wanted in connection with other cases across the borough, over the last several months.
On January 3, a woman attempted to rob a Chase Bank 3514 White Plains Road but escaped empty handed.
