Man with very large ears sought for Dartmouth Street bank holdup

The Eastern Bank branch at 155 Dartmouth St. was held up around 12:15 p.m. by a man who showed a note, but no gun.

He's described as being in his mid 20s, 5'6" to 5'8" with very short hair with just a touch of gray, a light goatee - and very large ears. He was wearing an over-sized, purplish L.L. Bean sweatshirt, white sneakers and a burgundy Nike baseball cap.

An Orange Line train was briefly held at Back Bay for a search; he was not found on the train and service resumed.

About three years ago, another big-eared bandit held up a series of banks on the Allston/Brookline line before he was captured. However, he was a lot taller than today's suspect.

He'd be just about that age now.
