YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Rutherford police released a surveillance shot of an armed robber who they said waited for the Capitol One Bank branch on Park Avenue to open this morning, then took $3,500.

The robber came in through the Franklin Place entrance once the doors opened at 9 a.m., Rutherford Police Chief John Russo said.

He handed the teller a note and displayed a wooden-handled handgun in his waistband, the chief said. Then he fled with the cash in a dark backpack.

The robber was described as about 5-foot-8, with dark hair, sideburns, a square jaw and pock-marked cheeks. He was wearing a dark jacket and a black baseball cap with the name “Aramark” om the front.

The FBI was at the scene, along with the Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification, which was collecting evidence.

Anyone with information that could help authorities catch the robber is asked to call Rutherford PD: (201) 939-6000
