PETERBOROUGH — Peterborough police are looking for two suspects following reports of an armed robbery Monday at 2:35 p.m. at the GFA Federal Credit Union on Jaffrey Road.
According to a press release issued Monday night, after at least one of the men displayed a firearm, the two men fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash to an awaiting vehicle parked at the north end of Monadnock Community Plaza.
Police released the following descriptions of the two men: black male, mid 20s, 5-foot-6-inches to 5-8, 160 pounds, dark-colored knit hat and dressed in all dark clothing; black male, early 20s, 5-4 to 5-6, 130 pounds, dark-colored knit hat and dressed in a dark sweatshirt and dark pants.
The suspect vehicle is described as a silver-colored four-door sedan with unknown Massachusetts registration. It left the parking lot traveling northbound on Grove Street. The case remains under investigation by the Peterborough Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 924-8050.
Police were on scene at the GFA in the Monadnock Community Plaza on Jaffrey Road late Monday afternoon, with several police officers standing outside the office, which was roped off with police tape.
While on scene, police would not disclose what had happened at the GFA, but Susie Reeves, the owner of The Dollar Stop in the Monadnock Plaza, said she was told no one was hurt.
The 41,000-square-foot plaza, which also includes several restaurants, a laundromat and Radio Shack, was recently purchased by the Lannan Company of Nashua for $2.35 million.
