Arlington police have obtained an arrest warrant for a man in connection with a robbery at Winchester Savings Bank one year ago.

Michael Moran, 40, of Somerville, will be charged with one count of armed robbery while masked with a dangerous weapon, a police news release says.

About 10:21 a.m. on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, officers responded to the Winchester Savings Bank, at 188 Medford St., for a report of an armed robbery.

It was reported that a male suspect had entered the bank wearing dark glasses and a Red Sox hat and had his face covered with a cloth. The suspect allegedly removed a small knife and demanded money from the teller. The suspect then fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Arlington Police Inspector Stephen Porciello was in charge of investigating the incident. Through the investigation that has taken place over the past year, Moran was identified as the suspect in the robbery.

Moran is currently in custody for an unrelated incident in Tewksbury.

"I want to commend Inspector Porciello for his work on this case over the past year," Chief Juliann Flaherty said in the July 15 release. "This was a thorough investigation that has allowed us to identify a suspect and obtain a warrant for his arrest."
