Masked man robs Methuen credit union at gunpoint

City's fourth bank robbery in six weeks


He got into a white Nissan and headed south on Broadway toward Lawrence. There were two other people in the getaway car, police said.

On Jan. 30, a man, who stood about 5-feet 7-inches, robbed the TD Bank branch at 228 Haverhill St. at 12:15 p.m. wearing dark sunglasses, a dark hoodie, a baseball hat and a goatee. The man told the teller he had a knife, but did not display a weapon, police said. He asked for 100s and 50s. Police were not sure at the time whether he fled in a vehicle or on foot.
