Police look for bank robber in N. Arlington

Police are searching for a man who robbed a Sovereign Bank on River Road in North Arlington.

Initial reports led police to believe the man fled behind the building toward the Passaic River.

Authorities called for police boats and helicopters from county and local departments to assist in the search along the river.

As the search went on, investigators reviewed surveillance footage at the bank.

After reviewing the tapes, police say the disguised robber managed to flee the scene in an SUV.

Police are still looking for him.
