Po­lice are search­ing for a man who robbed a bank in Sub­ur­ban Plaza on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The rob­ber walked into the WSFS Bank at ap­prox­i­mately 3:30 p.m. and handed the teller a note de­mand­ing money and im­ply­ing he was armed, said Cpl. James Spadola, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice De­part­ment.

The teller handed over an undis­closed amount of mon- ey, and the rob­ber ran away north through The Re­treat at Ne­wark apart­ment com­plex. A K-9 search of the area turned up empty.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as a black man, 25 to 35 years old, be­tween 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet 1 inches tall and 170 to 190 pounds with a mus­cu­lar build. He was wear­ing black-framed glasses, a black base­ball hat, a black Nike sweat­shirt with neon yel­low or green trim, white-and-black run­ning shoes and light-gray sweat- pants. No sur­veil­lance footage was avail­able.
