On 9/19/08 at approximately  4:47 PM, 2 Black males robbed a bank in the 1400 Block of 5th Avenue. One suspect had his hand in his pocket implying he had a handgun.  The suspects left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and fled to the west. Officers arrived and  searched the area.  Officers  stopped a possible suspect in the  1300 Block of  4th Avenue.   We had a witness from the bank come by and positively identify the suspect.    The suspect was placed under arrest and they recovered stolen money from the suspect taken in the robbery.  The robbery task force responded to the scene and the West Precinct and assisted officers in coordinating the investigation.  At this time the second  suspect is at large.
