Bank assault reported in Jacksonville

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 12:26 PM

Report just in of a robbery in the First Arkansas Bank and Trust on Main Street in Jacksonville.

UPDATE: It's unclear whether the bank was robbed. But a caller who's been talking with employees said a man with an axe hit a bank employee in the side of the head and a fight ensued. It's unclear at this point whether anything was taken before the incident ended. At this moment, no info on the whereabouts of the assailant.

UPDATE: Channel 7 reports that the man apparently was not a robber, but upset (I'll say) about banking issues when he whacked an employee with an axe handle. The employee is receiving hospital treatment.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
