Little Rock Police release photos of bank robber, person of interest

Posted: Updated:

Little Rock Police are searching for the person who robbed a west Little Rock bank.

According to officers, a man walked into the Bank of Little Rock on Rodney Parham Road just before 9:30 Tuesday morning. Witnesses said he showed a weapon and demanded money. Only bank employees were inside at the time.

Surveillance cameras captured the suspect wearing a Jamaican style hat with fake dreads. Witnesses told officers earlier this week a man who resembles the robber visited the bank.

Little Rock Police released photos of both the bank robber and the person who resembles the robber.

Sergeant Cassandra Davis said it's not uncommon to see bank robberies in this area of Little Rock because of its close location to the interstate.

"It is a high traffic area. It's one of the main arteries where someone can jump onto 430 from either Rodney Parham or Shackleford," said Sgt. Davis.

Officers said the suspect drove away in a maroon SUV, traveling southbound on Shackleford Road.
