New Rochelle police responded to reports of a robbery at the Webster Bank branch located next to the Radisson Hotel on River Street, chasing the suspects until the driver of the getaway car crashed near Exit 14 on I-95. Two men entered the bank around noon on Tuesday. They were wearing masks. One displayed a hand gun while the other demanded money from a bank teller.
After getting money from the teller, the pair left the scene in a blue SUV with Pennsylvania plates driven by a third man.
One of the responding officers from the New Rochelle police department saw the blue SUV and engaged in pursuit of the vehicle which was heading southbound on I-95. The officer observed one man throw something out the window. A gun was later recovered near that location.
The chase ended at the I-95 Exit 14 for the Hutchinson River Parkway. The driver lost control of the vehicle, struck a barrier and rolled forward onto a grassy area.
