Norfolk Bank Robbed

By  | 

After the deadly incident that left five dead in a Norfolk bank branch nearly two years ago, city police and residents were relieved there were no injuries in another bank holdup there Tuesday morning.

Norfolk police say a Wells Fargo Bank branch in downtown Norfolk was held up at 9:16 a.m. by a white man described as about 35, 6"0" and 200 pounds.

Police say the man handed a teller a note, demanding money and saying he had a gun. He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say that while no gun was displayed, the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

Mike Feuhrer says his wife works at the bank and their daughter is interning there. He was noticeably relieved there were no injuries.

All Norfolk Public Schools also were locked down as a precaution.

In September 2002, five people were killed by gunmen who entered a US Bank branch in Norfolk. Four men have been convicted of murder in that case.
