On Saturday, February 2, 2019, at approximately 9:30 AM, a bank robbery occurred at the Bank of America in Englewood, located at 21 Park Place.
A single suspect walked calmly into the bank and went directly to a teller’s station and quietly announced the robbery. The teller remained calm and turned over an amount of cash we are not releasing at this time. The suspect, described as a male with darker skin, possibly armed with a long weapon, was wearing gloves, along with a hooded coat and mask that hid most of his face. After receiving the cash, the suspect left through the same doors he entered and walked out of sight. Police were called, responded and closed an area in and around the bank for several hours.
Detectives responded and conducted a thorough investigation that included recovering physical and forensic evidence. We are also in the process of reviewing a multitude of video surveillance sources in the area. This is an active investigation that we are conducting with the FBI’s Bank Robbery Squad.
We are asking for the public’s help, through our CrimeStoppers group, for further information concerning this robbery. Crimestoppers offers up to a $1,000 cash reward for any information that significantly assists the Police in their investigations.
