Bank Robbery in Central Square and Possible Suspect

The FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force, along with the Cambridge Police Department, responded to an attempted bank robbery at Bank of America, 772 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge earlier this morning.


The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5'10", with a mustache, dark skin, husky build and wearing a black jacket, gray sweatshirt, black knit cap and black sneakers. He did pass a note, but did not manage to obtain any money.


As part of this investigation, we're running down every possible lead, working with our federal, state and local partners. While we do not have an identity of the suspect at this point in time, investigators are looking at the possibility that the suspect generally fits the description of escaped federal prisoner James Morales, who fled the Wyatt Detention Center last weekend.
