For the second time in five weeks, the North American Savings Bank on 23rd Street has been robbed.

A man walked into the bank at 11400 E. 23rd St., several blocks west of Crysler Avenue, at 11:15 a.m. Saturday. The suspect indicated to bank employees he had a gun.
He got away with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police.

On Aug. 24, the bank was robbed in much the same way when the robber did not show a weapon but indicated he did. But the physical description of the two robbers leads investigators to believe it’s two different people. Police are still looking for the Aug. 24 robber.

The man connected to the latest robbery could be 50 years old or older and has “scruffy” facial hair.

Surveillance cameras captured footage of the robber in the bank and outside cameras caught pictures of a dark colored vehicle, possibly gold, that may have been used in the robbery.

No one was injured in either robbery.
