Possibly pregnant bank robber knocks over downtown Boston bank

While the woman said she was concealing her gun, she wasn't concealing her baby bump.

Boston police are asking for the public's help locating a woman who allegedly robbed a downtown bank this week and from the surveillance photos she may have had an involuntary accomplice.

Surveillance photographs released by police Tuesday show the woman sporting a baby bump. Police, however, did not include her being pregnant in their suspect description. It was not clear if the woman was actually pregnant or was using a clever disguise.

The woman walked into the Citizens Bank at 28 State St., just after 12:30 p.m. Monday and handed a teller a note.

The note said that the woman was in possession of a gun and wanted all of the money in the teller's drawer, according to police. She then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police described the suspect as a white woman with black hair, about 5 feet 4 inches tall. She was wearing a cream-colored shirt and light blue pants.

Anyone with information can call 617-343-4571.
