Bank In Kroger Store Held Up By Man Wearing Skeleton Mask, Brandishing Semi-Auto Gun
Cincinnati Police are searching for a suspect who robbed the Fifth Third Bank inside a Kroger store. The suspect wore a skeleton mask, carried an umbrella and brandished a semi-automatic handgun at the teller, demanding cash.
[su_center_ad]The robbery took place around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the branch location at 2310 Ferguson Road, according to Cincinnati.com.
The man stole an undetermined amount of cash, then placed the money in a black nylon bag with white letters and fled the bank.
Police say the man is believed to have fled toward the rear of the adjacent Wal-Mart store.
Just to make an unbiased point (I joke), he could be this open carry Kroger shopper:
Like this nice gentleman.
Kroger doesn’t allow skateboards, shirtless shoppers or kids eating an ice cream cone, but an armed man wearing a skeleton mask slips past their radar. Maybe he was just blending in.
Safety for Kroger’s shoppers should be a thing, but I don’t want to stomp on anyone’s rights to totally freak the public out.
Big thanks to my source for the link. [su_csky_ad]
