Kalamazoo, MI: On March 25th, 2019, Kalamazoo Public Safety responded to the 3200 block of Portage Rd, Old National Bank, on a report of a Robbery in progress. The employees advised an African American male, in his late 40’s early 50’s, entered the bank at approximately 1326, demanding money from the teller.
The suspect was wearing a black hooded zip up jacket, dark colored pants and shoes, and light colored ball cap. A gun was not seen, but he insinuated he had a gun. He fled the bank on foot after grabbing an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller.
Officers arrived on scene shortly after the 911 call. A witness watched as a black male ran around the east end of the bank, through the parking lot, heading south and out of sight. Another witness observed the suspect jump into a small passenger vehicle, missing a front passenger hubcap on Howland Ave. The vehicle left west down Howland Ave, then north on Portage Rd.
Kalamazoo Public Safety Patrol, Criminal Investigations Division, and Forensic Lab are working in conjunction with the FBI in attempts to identify the suspects in this case. Attached are photos showing the suspect inside the bank during the robbery.
