Police Investigating Bank Robbery at First Citizens Bank
A bank robbery occurred today at the First Citizens Bank, 3205 Plank Road.
The suspect entered the bank just prior to 1:30 pm and presented a note to the teller demanding cash. The suspect did not display a weapon. At one point the suspect jumped over the teller counter, but he fled from the bank without obtaining any cash and without injuring any employees.
The suspect was described as a white male in his early 20’s, approximately 5’6” and 120 pounds, and with some facial hair. He was wearing black Nike jogging pants with a white stripe, a black top with a Puma logo on it, and a dark colored ball cap with a red logo. The suspect wore gloves.
The suspect was last seen running in the direction of the Regal 14 Cinemas. Officers from the City and deputies from Spotsylvania County responded to the area immediately but have been unable to locate the suspect.
This is the second robbery at the First Citizens Bank within the past thirty days. The last robbery occurred on December 22 and the suspect in that incident is still at large.
Anyone with information concerning this or any other case should contact the Fredericksburg Police Department at 540-373-3122.
