Robber hits Kingsbury bank; suspect at large

A man robbed the Bank of America on Kingsbury Grade Tuesday at 3:20 p.m. by threatening a teller with a fake weapon.

The robber stole an undisclosed amount of money, said Aaron Crawford, Douglas County Sherriff’s investigator.

There were no injuries. However, the bank teller who was approached by the suspect was six-months pregnant, and later was taken to the doctor by her husband.

The man, fleeing on foot, managed to elude the sheriff’s deputies, but authorities have the crime on video tape.

Douglas County Sherriff’s deputies have not apprehended the suspect.

He is described as a white male of medium build and height, between 35 and 40 years old. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, blue pants, a blue baseball cap with an unknown logo. He also had a distinctively rounded nose, Crawford said.

“We are on the lookout for the individual who did it obviously,” Crawford said.

“Like in any other crime scene we will take forensic evidence from the scene and blow up any photos,” said Douglas Sheriff’s Lt. Michael Biaggini.

After the robbery, the bank was closed by the sherriff’s office and witnesses were questioned by investigators inside the bank. The sherriff’s department also blocked off the front section of the parking lot.
