PORTLAND, Maine — Portland police are investigating possible connections between an armed robbery of a city credit union and two previous robberies in the city.

Police say a man with a gun entered the TruChoice Federal Credit Union at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, demanded money from two tellers and fled with cash.

There were several other employees and customers in the credit union, but there were no reports of injuries.

The robber was caught on video surveillance. He is described as a white man wearing a dark colored sweatshirt with the hood up, and possibly wearing a ski mask.

Police are looking into whether Thursday’s robbery is connected to a Jan. 12 robbery at the University Credit Union and a Jan. 11 robbery at a convenience store.
