NPD asking public to help re Wright-Patt robberies

Lt. Tom Williams with Norwood Police Department told us yesterday police are considering the possibility the same suspect robbed Wright-Patterson Credit Union on Lafayette Ave. both Tuesday this week and on Wednesday, December 30. In addition to the similar descriptions of the robbers witnesses provided, there is the additional information that in both robberies, the suspects were last seen running up Washington Ave. and turning right on Ashland Ave.. It is not known whether the suspect(s) then fled the scene in a car parked on Ashland or a nearby street in advance of the robberies or whether he fled in a getaway car driven by an accomplice. But here is what Lt. Williams is asking all of us to do: please call the Norwood police at 458-4521 or Crimestoppers at 352-3040 if we see anyone resembling the suspect’s description (see yesterday’s “WLW 700...” blog below) or anyone else walking towards/to Wright-Patterson Credit Union after getting out of a car on Ashland Ave. or even a block away. At this point, that meets definition of suspicious behavior the Norwood police want to know about right away.
