Police say a note was passed to a teller at Crescent Credit Union on Belmont Street.
BROCKTON — A bank on the city’s west side was robbed Friday afternoon.
Officers responded to Crescent Credit Union, at 1300 Belmont St., about 2:55 p.m. after initially receiving a report of suspicious people at the business. Police then received a silent panic alarm from the bank.
Police responded and learned that the bank had been robbed. Police say a note was passed to a teller. It wasn’t immediately clear if any money was taken.
Officers on scene learned that a white sedan caused a crash in the parking lot of the nearby Speedway gas station on Belmont Street shortly after the robbery. Witnesses told police the vehicle sped down Pearl Street toward Easton.
An Easton police officer told Brockton police he witnessed the car driving down Turnpike Street into West Bridgewater but that he couldn’t catch up to the vehicle.
About 15 minutes before the robbery, Brockton police were notified of a robbery at the Abington Bank branch on East Main Street in Avon. The suspects reportedly ran toward Brockton.
Police say the description of the two suspects appear to match in both robberies. No arrests had been made as of Friday afternoon.
