Police release photos of Mariemont bank robber

MARIEMONT, OH (FOX19) - Police have released surveillance photos of a bank robbery at the U.S. Bank in Mariemont.

Just before 9:30 a.m. July 10, Mariemont Police were called to the US Bank on the 6900 block of Madisonville Road.

Mariemont Police Chief Richard Hines says the suspect walked into the bank with a rifle, demanded cash and ran out the back entrance.

The robber is described as a black man wearing dark jogging pants and dark shirt. He was also wearing a bandana on his head trying to cover part of his face.

Chief Hines says K-9 units from the Cincinnati Police dept. searched the area behind the US Bank and around apartment complexes, but no one has been arrested.

This is the second time US Bank has been robbed in four months. According to Chief Hines, right now they do not believe the robberies are linked. But in both cases the robber actually showed the weapon instead of just threatening possession of one.

Several customers and employees were inside the bank at the time of the robbery, but no one was hurt.

James Norman, asst. manager of Mio's Pizza next door to US Bank, says this is unusual in typically quiet Mariemont.

"Not at all this is a very peaceful quiet community, very family oriented, nothing like that has ever happened especially in the morning," Norman said.

If you have information on this crime, call CRIMESTOPPERS at (513) 352-3040.
