Greenfield police seeking suspect in foiled robbery attempt

July 17, 2013

Police are seeking a man whose attempt to rob a Greenfield bank was foiled when a patron interrupted the robbery and fought with the suspect on Saturday.

According to Greenfield police:

The suspect entered Great Midwest Bank, 5150 S. 76th St., at about 11:30 a.m., displayed an electric shock-type device and forced all the employees into the vault, where he bound them and demanded money.

When a customer walked into the bank and interrupted the robbery, the suspect attempted to force the patron into the vault. When the patron resisted, he fled the bank without obtaining any money.

The customer sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene and released.

The suspect is described as a black, 6 feet tall with an average build, and between 20 and 30 years old. He was wearing a dark-colored suit.

Any persons with information about this incident are asked to call Det. Brent Hart of the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5300, and reference case number 13-2436.
