Federal and local authorities are looking for one man they believe is responsible for robbing six banks and attempting to rob two others over the past three weeks. The suspect struck again today at the Wells Fargo Bank branch on the 1200 block of East Lancaster Avenue in Bryn Mawr, PA. In each incident the man enters the bank and hands over a threatening note. After the teller hands over the cash he simply walks out. The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5'10" tall, medium build, medium complexion, with eyeglasses. No one has been injured so far and he hasn't displayed a weapon, but authorities still consider him armed and dangerous. If you have any information or recognize this man call the Philadelphia FBI at 215-418-4000. These are the robberies the man has committed already:

12/29/2014 - Wells Fargo Bank, 1200 East Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA.
12/26/2014 - PNC Bank, 101 South Easton Road, Glenside, PA.
12/26/2014 - Wells Fargo Bank, 1575 North 52nd Street, Philadelphia. (attempted robbery)
12/23/2014 - PNC Bank, 5900 North Broad Street, Philadelphia.
12/22/2014 - Prudential Savings Bank, 1722 South Broad Street, Philadelphia.
12/18/2014 - Valley Green Bank, 7226 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia.
12/15/2014 - PNC Bank, 230 South Broad Street, Philadelphia.
12/11/2014 - Beneficial Bank, 1600 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. (attempted robbery)

The 10-year-old boy who was struck and killed by a police cruiser Sunday night in Gloucester County, New Jersey, has been identified as Matthew McCloskey. (pictured below) McCloskey was with two other friends on their way to a sleepover when they were crossing Delsea Drive in Franklin Township around 7 pm. Ptl. Nicholas Locilento of the Franklin Township Police Department was responding to a call and driving down the road. Witnesses say the police car did not have it's lights or sirens on at the time it struck the boy. McCloskey was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer was taken to the hospital for evaluation and part of procedure. The crash is under investigation by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office. Franklin Township officials released this statement:

“First and foremost our thoughts and prayers go out to the McCloskey family that tragically lost their son. Whenever a young life is lost like this it is tragic for everyone, his family and our community,

While this is very difficult for the young boy’s family it is also very difficult for that police officer involved. It is our understanding that the officer was responding to an urgent call when this accident happened and we support the officer who was involved in this. He is very shaken up by being involved in this incident and we are supporting him in this difficult time.”

A man caught masturbating on a woman's 2nd floor deck in Bensalem was shot by a resident of another apartment while trying to break in there. The whole bizarre incident happened around 8:30 pm Sunday night at the Franklin Commons Apartments on the 1000 block of Boblink Drive in Bensalem. Police say that 21-year-old Angel Suarez Medero was seen pleasuring himself outside on the deck of a female resident's apartment. She called 911 and left. Medero gained access to the apartment by a sliding glass door, grabbed her dog, and jumped out the second floor bedroom window. Medero then broke into a nearby first floor apartment that was occupied and assaulted two of the occupants. A resident shot the suspect twice with his .45 caliber gun. Medero continued to fight until police arrived. He was taken to Aria Torresdale Hospital in critical condition. He will be charged with burglary, assault and related offenses. The resident who shot Medero is cooperating with police and the gun was legally owned and registered.

Medero is a renowned horse racing jockey based at Parx Casino in Bensalem. He has won 142 races and brought in more than $3 million in winnings. Those who knew him are in disbelief of his actions.

The dog, a four-year-old, long-haired dachshund named “Ollie,” is still missing.

13-year-old Philadelphia Little League pitcher Mo'ne Davis was named AP Female Athlete of the Year. She has also been named Sports Kid of the Year by Sports Illustrated Kids.
