Police say they now believe two recent armored truck robberies in the Bronx are part of a pattern.

The NYPD released a photograph of the suspect’s vehicle Wednesday in the most recent robbery. It's a four-door sedan with tinted windows. They also say the suspect was wearing a suit during the robbery. The incident occurred Tuesday outside EG Money Service at 1471 Westchester Ave. Police say two workers were putting money inside the vehicle when a man approached them with a gun and demanded the cash. Officials say the suspect opened fire on the Rapid Armored truck employees and stole $78,000.

Police say on Dec. 4, a Loomis armored vehicle was robbed by a man exiting the bank on Westchester and Ward avenues. They say the gunman demanded the driver’s bag of cash and pistol.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
