LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Police have confirmed that a bank robbery has taken place for the second time in the course of a month at the Bank of the Ozarks.
According to Sgt. Cassandra Davis, the robbery took place Thursday around 3:45 p.m. on 109 North Chester Street.
Police have released a photo taken from video surveillance cameras at the bank. In the photo, the suspect is shown holding out a gun in front of a bank teller. He is wearing a baggy, grey hoodie with a dark shirt beneath and appears to be wearing a dark ball cap with a dark bandana covering his face.
Davis said the suspect showed the employees a pistol and demanded money. He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled south from the bank on foot.
According to police there were no customers in the bank, though three bank employees were present at the time. No one was injured.
A previous robbery took place at this very bank on the morning of April 10 when a man came in and demanded cash. While he did not show a weapon during that robbery, he did indicate that he had one.
Davis said they are not sure if the same suspect is responsible for both robberies, but investigators will be reviewing the evidence closely.
