Photo, description released of Greylock Federal Credit Union robber


PITTSFIELD — City police have released more details about the man believed to be responsible for the knifepoint robbery Wednesday of the Greylock Federal Credit Union branch on Route 7.

Police said a black male, estimated to be between 25 and 30 years old, between 5' 10" and 6' tall, weighing about 200 pounds, entered the credit union shortly before 6 p.m., displayed a knife to a teller and demanded cash.

The suspect was described as having his face obscured while wearing a black and red hooded sweatshirt, gloves, jeans and a pair of grey and white sneakers.

No one was injured during the robbery.

Police said the man left the building with an undisclosed amount of cash and headed in the direction of nearby Lakeview Street.

While this is at least the sixth robbery in the city since Nov. 23, police said they do not believe this latest incident is connected to any of the prior incidents.

According to a statement released Wednesday evening by Greylock CEO John Bissell, the branch will remain closed until Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pittsfield Police Detective Thomas Dawley at 413-448-9705.

Contact Bob Dunn at 413-496-6249.
