Brazen Bank Robber Remains At Large

Colorado Springs police are still searching for a man they say walked into an American National Bank, at 3755 Briargate Boulevard, with a gun and demanded that everyone get on the floor. He stole cash from the teller and then took a wallet and cell phone from one of the customers.

The robber is described as a male, unknown race, 5'8" 5'10", wearing a ski mask, grey hoodie and a blue leather jacket with white letters. He was armed with a semi-automatic handgun.

The suspect left in an unknown direction. No get-away vehicle was seen.

The same bank was hit a month ago. Police say the suspects involved in that robbery have been arrested. There have been 10 bank robberies so far this year, which surpasses all of last year's total of nine.

    Why does the news tend to keep us notified of recent bank robberies I really don't care banks have insurance for the lost money but if the robber killed someone in the attempt of robbing a bank than that will be a concern, but really if it needed to be televised why not release any video or photos I know the CSPD are a bunch of boneheads they could use the public eye for help. Robbers will win if the Chief of police doesn't get it together. Local taxpayers need answers not excuses or finger pointing.

    Is it junk to report on a bank robbery? I never would have thought of that. Why would a Brown's fan from Cleveland care what happens in Colorado Springs anyway?

    @K.....Speaking of ignorance, why don't you go study your spelling words before you try and judge people on their level of intelligence. You can't have a battle of the wits when you're unarmed there punchy.

    This is a very disturbing trend for our communities in El Paso Cty. Security at our financial institutions should be adequate as they are. Unfortunately, our version of east LA is becoming more prevelant with miscreants who become braver as they discover the weak links which, is an oxymoron I guess. I wish them special treats in prison and all the time in the world.

    @anonymous.. So people can't think on there own is what your saying. That's an interesting fact. I never thought of that. So I guess you didn't come up with that fact all on your own. I would like to see what scientific study shows that. However if you live your life feeling that way then maybe you are right where you need to be. I sure wouldn't want to make you and wiser. Have you every heard the saying " You know just if enough to be dangerous" it's in criminology. Maybe you should read that book. We can go on for days about this, but everytime someone write an ignorant comment on here I will be on there heels. I'm sure alot of people will agree with me.

      People are entitled to their comments, ignorant or not. If you don't like what they say, that's your problem.

    If I were the police, I'd be interviewing the employees. Something doesn't add up here, given the fact this bank was robbed twice in a short period, by a different suspect and a VAGUE description of the suspect.

    Yep.. It was rap music. That is involved in 90 percent of all crimes. Just ask city residents in the southeast...

    Not sure if he got away with anything? Well, that's some fine cooperation between the bank and police...

    Wait!!! Maybe this was because of rap music too. Where are all the ignorant people on this one. Please respond to this I dare you.

      The police probably arrived after he got way so they have no idea what is going on.

        why in the world would we persecute the needy, this person is probably a victim of parental ignorance, mommy was too busy doing backwork or maybe even knee work so she could get money to pay for things she needed because daddy probably in prison for him being a victim of his upbringing. So don't punish him he is only doing what he knows in order to survive, could possibly be because of society not building moral values and teaching the children the way of doing the right thing.Does anyone one out their know how to clean their house before you clean others, no, we just ignore and it will come back another day. Go back to how this country is supposed to be one nation under God. God does anyone ever think about the day you have to meet your maker and face the judgements he will make you accountable for, no probably not. One nation under God, what does that mean? In God we trust hum so look at your families and see what you haven't taught them, So who is really to blame. Self seeking only comes back to haunt all of us, even the innocent, think about it and remeber We all have to answer for our shortcomings.
