Fairfield police on lookout for bank robber

Fairfield police are looking for a man they say held up a People?s Bank on Old Post Road Saturday.

Police say they got a call about the heist after just after 11 a.m. Lt. Michael Walsh of the Fairfield police says the man handed over a note and did not display a weapon. He says the man then walked out the door with the cash. Witnesses say he was wearing an uncharacteristic Australian hat with a chin strap.

The bank was shut down as police investigated the incident. Police will analyze surveillance video from the bank for help with the case.

Fairfield police are urging anyone with information to call them at 203-254-4800.
