A masked man briefly took a PNC Bank customer hostage and threatened to kill him unless bank employees gave him cash during a robbery Friday afternoon, according to police.
Mount Laurel Police said the suspect confronted the customer as he was leaving the Ark Road branch around 5:30 p.m. and forced him back inside. The suspect implied he had a gun and demanded money from the employees, threatening to shoot the customer if they didn’t comply.
Bank employees turned over an undisclosed amount of money and the unidentified suspect fled in a tan sedan, possibly a Toyota Corolla, northbound on Ark Road, according to police.
No one was hurt during the robbery.
The suspect was described as wearing gray cargo pants, a gray hoodie and a maroon and white Halloween mask. His jacket may have been inside-out and has a distinctive design on the back, police said.
