Bank robbery report in downtown Little Rock

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 9:03 AM

Channel 11 reports on Twitter:

Developing: LR Police say man claiming to be armed with gun and bomb robs Metropolitan Bank at 425 W. Capitol.

Channel 4 says the robber said he had an explosive device.

More from Sgt. Cassandra Davis (but, first, an UPDATE: suspect now in custody):

On today’s date at approximately 8:43 a.m. officers were called to 425 W. Capitol, Metropolitan Bank, to a forgery turned robbery. When officers arrived on scene contact was made with bank employees who advised that a black male wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans and silver framed glasses walked into the back wanting to cash a check on what we believe to be his own closed account. The suspect was unsuccessful at cashing the check and then demanded money from a teller stating that he had both a gun and a bomb (no weapon was displayed). The suspect fled the bank on foot North then East from the bank after receiving an undisclosed amount of money. It is unknown if a vehicle was used to assist in the suspects getaway. Based on the information on the closed account officers responded to the address listed on the account. The address appears to be a bad address for the suspect. Officers continue to look for this suspect. There were approximately 4-7 customers inside the bank and approximately 4-5 employees. No one was injured during this incident.

The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
