'Bandage Bandit' still on the loose, may have hit other banks
The so-called "Bandage Bandit" is still on the loose Friday, after holding up two Greenwich banks on Thursday. The thief is believed to be responsible for at least six bank robberies in Stamford and Greenwich, but News 12 Connecticut has learned he may have also hit two other banks in the area.Police in Ramapo, New York say a man fitting the same description and using the same method robbed a bank there on August 23. It is possible the same suspect also held up a bank in Danbury on September 6. The aptly named outlaw robs banks wearing bandages over his cheekbones and now also his chin. His method consists of handing the teller a note demanding money and threatening to use a gun, although no gun was seen by witnesses or surveillance video.This is a timeline of the Bandage Bandit's escapades so far:August 29 - Attempts to rob a Fleet branch on West Main Street in Stamford.September 9 - Again attempts robbery at W. Main St. Fleet branch. Less than a half hour later, robs People's Bank on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich.September 17 - Robs People's Bank on Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich.October 2 - Robs Citibank on Railroad Avenue and Bank of New York on Mason Street in Greenwich.
