Alhaji Sarr-Daffee was convicted of robbery and related charges Thursday, after a three-day jury trial before Berks County Judge Thomas Parisi.

At 2 p.m. Aug. 21, 2013, the defendant walked into the Riverfront Federal Credit Union at 430 S. 4th St, in Reading.

Daffee walked up to a teller and presented a note stating: “I need all the money now I have a gun.”


The defendant then ran out with $2,270 in cash, but was quickly captured by Reading police.

Sentencing has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Aug. 21.
